A recipe vegetarian, tasty and super easy to prepare.


Number of serving: 4

For the Croquettes:

1 1/2 cup of cooked black-eyed peas

1 generous tablespoon of olive oil (totally forgot to put this in... they still came out good!)

1 generous tablespoon of tamari or soy sauce

1 cup of cooked quinoa (I used the red kind this time)

1 red or green chili, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme

1/2 teaspoon of dried basil

1 teaspoon of paprika

For the Coating:

1/4 cup of bread crumbs

1/4 cup of cornmeal

pinch of sea salt

freshly cracked black pepper

1/2 teaspoon of grated lemon zest


  • In a medium-large bowl, mash the black-eyed peas with a fork or potato masher.
  • Mix in the olive oil, tamari and hot chili. Add the quinoa to the bowl, along with the spices and herbs and stir until well combined.
  • Combine the ingredients for the coating in a small bowl.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease the sheet.
  • Shape the bean and quinoa mixture into small patties, roll in the crumb mixture and transfer to the baking sheet.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. Turn them after 20 minutes have elapsed.
