Black-Eyed Pea Fritters

I can only read about soul food for so long before I have to make a dash for the kitchen to whip up some for myself. Since Vegan Soul Kitchen was the source of this sudden craving, it’s only appropriate that I try out a recipe from Chef Bryant Terry’s book.

After rummaging through my pantry, I found a can of black-eyed peas and decided to use them to make Terry’s black-eyed pea fritters. I know, I know—his recipe calls for dried beans, and they are better for you and cheaper, but canned black-eyed peas still get the job done.

The recipe is fairly straightforward but includes a couple of unusual items that aren’t normally found in fritters. One of them is peanuts. Also, I must admit that I did not use coconut oil and instead opted for plain ol’ vegetable oil. Regardless, the fritters were still delicious.

Check out the recipe, which is on Terry’s Web site. It comes complete with cute music, art, and book recommendations!

    Oh my goodness, these were so amazing!!!! They were as easy as all get out and we all loved them, even the 2 and 3 year olds. I put just a dash of caynne pepper since I didn’t want them to be to spicy for the kids. Didn’t even make the hot pepper sauce to go with it, can only imagine how great that would be. Thanks for such a great recipe!

    Wow, it sounds (and looks) amazing.

    I rarely comment here, but I check your blog constantly. I have made many of your recipes and sometimes I post them in my blog (with credits to you, of course).

    Just wanted to take a minute to say THANKS for all your amazing recipes and ideas, and for all you do for the animals. 🙂

    Cheers~ Andréa

    … Strange plate … My mama used to have a smaller one just like it. She bought it from some 8th floor of a very long life local dept store. Mmm … “Pump it, Ai-yo! Pump it, Ai-yo! Pump it, Ai-yo! Pump it, Ai-yo!”
