2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 15 oz. can black eyed peas (or cannellini beans)
1 1/3 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 large egg
1/4 tsp chili powder
salt and pepper


Soften onion and garlic in oil. Add cumin – cook 3 minutes.

Off heat stir in parsley and beans. Mash or puree in a food processor. Stir in crumbs – then egg. Mix well and season

Shape into burgers and fry in hot oil
