INSTRUCTIONS: ONE: Prepare fritters: In a medium bowl, add peas and partially mash with a fork or potato masher. Place bread in a blender and grind into coarse bread crumbs. Add bread crumbs to peas with scallions, bell pepper, garlic, egg whites, thyme, jalapenos, salt and black pepper. TWO: Heat 1 1/2 tsp oil in a large nonstick skillet on medium. Working in 2 batches, spoon fritter batter into skillet in ¼ cup mounds, flattening slightly so they measure 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Cook for 3 minutes per side or until lightly golden. Once cooked, set aside on a separate plate. Repeat with remaining batter and 1 1/2 tsp oil. THREE: Meanwhile, prepare sauce: In a small bowl, stir together sour cream and horseradish. FOUR: Prepare rice: In a medium bowl, combine rice ingredients and toss gently. FIVE: To serve, divide rice mixture, fritters and sauce evenly among 4 plates.
