Vegan Black-eyed Peas Cakes/Black-eyed Peas Cornmeal Cakes

After some deep fried black-eyed peas fritters, my today's post is going to be some pan fried black-eyed peas cakes. Black-eyed peas cakes makes an excellent evening snacks since its calls for simple ingredients. I have seen couple of black-eyed peas cakes through google master and while checking those posts i decided to go with a simple black-eyed peas cakes cooked along with cornmeal.Actually this cakes are inspired from Southern inspired appetiziers or side dish. Though canned black-eyed peas works awesome for making this cakes, i preferred to prepare mine with soaked and cooked black-eyed peas which makes excellent cakes as well.

I have been posting some nutritious dishes with black-eyed peas for this week's blogging marathon as am showcasing a dry bean per week. After dry green peas, i picked black-eyed peas for this star ingredient of this week's marathon. Coming to this cakes, these pan fried cakes are completely egg free, and potatoes are not used in this cakes. I followed this recipe for making this cakes, however i skipped the egg whites and chicken broth as the original recipes went for. Served along with ketchup or else with sweet chilly sauce, these cakes makes an excellent crowd pleaser to serve for a get together or else for a party. Cooked cornmeal makes an excellent binding agent in this cakes and you doesnt need eggs for dishing out this protein rich cakes.
