Ingredients

  • 1

    pound dried black-eyed peas, picked-through and rinsed (or two 15-ounce cans peas, drained and rinsed)

  • 1

    medium onion, chopped

  • 3

    cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1/2

    cup chopped parsley

  • 1

    tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 2

    tablespoons water

  • 1/2

    teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 to 2

    teaspoons kosher salt

  • 1

    tablespoon cornmeal

  • 1

    tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • Vegetable oil, for panfrying

Directions

If using dry beans, cover the beans with water in a bowl, and soak overnight in a cool or refrigerated place. After draining the beans, peel off the outer skins. In a food processor, pulse beans until they are finely pureed. Place pureed beans in a bowl. In the same food processor, add the onion, garlic, parsley, apple cider vinegar and water; process until finely blended. Stir the onion mixture, spices, cornmeal and flour into the bean puree. Put the mixture into the refrigerator for 1/2 hour. Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed pan. Using a tablespoon, drop the mixture into the oil, and fry on each side until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
