Very yummy, can be eaten on their own or used as vegeburger patties.
Time required: 30min
1 cup of shelled and shucked broad beans (also known as fava beans)
1 cup peas (frozen is fine)
1 cup cooked rice (leftover from the night before is perfect)
about 1 cup breadcrumbs (finely crumbed)
2 good pinches of salt
1 teaspoon cumin (can be ommitted)
oil for frying (canola preferably or another mild tasting oil)
water for boiling
1 frying pan
blender or food processor or mortar and pestle
plates, and bowls
kitchen paper (if you want to soak up some of the oil after cooking)
Step 1: Cook the Beans
Simmer for about 10 minutes until soft.
Step 2: Blend the Green Things
Leaving a few lumps (or whole peas) is fine, it adds texture.
Step 3: Mix Ingredients
Blended green stuff
1 cup cooked rice
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
pinch of salt
In a smaller bowl add
rest of breadcrumbs
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon cumin (can leave out cumin if you want or replace with a little dried stock or paprika)
Step 4: Form Patties
Then squish into a patty shape between your palms.
Coat in breadcrumbs.
should make approx 12 patties.
Step 5: Fry
Poar a reasnoble amount of oil in the frying pan (so it will reach about hlf way up the patties sides.
Heat oil until hot.
Then put patties in the oil (patties should sizzle immediately when going into the pan, if they do not oil is not hot enough and you need to wait a bit longer).
When patties get golden brown (should take a couple of minutes) flip them over and cook the other side.
Step 6: Done
They are really nice to eat with some sour cream and sweet chili sauce, or as a vegeburger/ sandwich filling.
