Try this recipe for a new twist on the veggie burger. The protein in these burgers come from black-eyed peas.
Add the black-eyed peas to a pan and add 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 1 hour until black-eyed peas are tender. If using canned black-eyed peas, skip this step.
Heat 1 Tbsp of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; add the diced onions and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and the chopped mushrooms and sauté for 3-4 minutes, until the onions begin to lightly brown. Add the jalapeño pepper, allspice, nutmeg, ground ginger and chili powder and sauté one minute more.
Remove the mixture to a large bowl, and add the beans, fresh minced ginger, bread crumbs and rice. Using your hands, squish, mash, and mix all the ingredients together. The mixture should be slightly chunky and somewhat sticky. Form the mixture into 6 equal balls, then flatten them into patties. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a wide skillet and gently pan-fry each burger over medium heat, approximately 3-4 minutes on each side until browned and crispy.
