Vegan black eyed pea burger patties


Are you looking for more plant-based protein ideas? Here are my black-eyed pea vegan burger patties!

Even if you are not vegan or vegetarian, science shows there are health benefits to adding more fiber-rich prebiotic food and opting for more plants. Try these for your next meatless monday!

⁣Black Eyed Peas may not be on your radar but they are a great source of vegan plant-based protein (13 g in 1 cup) and prebiotic fiber (1 cup has 11g!). ⁣

They also cook up pretty fast and do not require overnight soaking. They are also great source of minerals like folate & iron.⁣

You could alternatively use any bean of your choice a plant-based protein. ⁣

I batch cooked these patties & froze them to eat as a quick meal on a busy day.⁣

Method (made 6 patties- you could double this)⁣

1. Cook rinsed black eyed peas on bean chili mode in Instapot (batch cook 1 lb of dry beans with enough water to cover 1 inch above.  Cook in 1/2 tspsalt & 1 tsp turmeric. ⁣Hint: if making a different day, just place in the refrigerator : )

2. Measure 2 cups cooked beans & add to food processor along with all below ingredients . You can use the extra peas to make more burgers or turn into a curry! See how here:

3. 2 inches ginger roughly chopped (see pics)⁣

4. 1 jalapeño (optional) 🔥 ⁣

5. 1/2 cup corn flour⁣

6. 2 garlic cloves⁣

7. 6 stems fresh cilantro⁣

8. 1/2 tsp salt, to taste⁣

9. Grind all the ingredients in the food processor just until course but not completely puréed.⁣

10. Make patties in the palm of your hand (see pic) & put in plate ⁣

11. Heat stainless steel pan on medium heat. Add 1 tsp avocado oil for 3 patties at a time (see pic)⁣

12. Cook on each side until brown.⁣

13. Serve with lettuce, tomatoes, onion as a burger or as kabobs with your favorite veggies as a side.


Most beans and vegetables are great sources of prebiotic fiber. What is your favorite source?
