Meatless Monday with Vegan Black-Eyed Pea Burgers with Mississippi Comeback Sauce

Welcome to the Miratel blog for our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

With summer quickly dwindling, we thought we would fit in a few more BBQ recipes because going vegan doesn’t mean you have give up your favorite BBQ foods or flavours. We have recently shared summer recipes like Vegan Grilled Vegetable and Tofu “Lasagna” with Pesto, a Vegan Eggplant Crunchburger, a Vegan Kidney Bean & Walnut Burgers with Mississippi Comeback Sauce, a Vegan Japanese Eggplant Dog, a Vegan Bistro Beet Burger, the Ultimate Sriracha Veggie Burger, a Vegan Tofu Kebabs with Cilantro Sauce and a Vegan Pulled “Pork” BBQ Sandwich. Today we’ll be adding Vegan Black-Eyed Pea Burgers with Mississippi Comeback Sauce to this list courtesy of our friends at One Green Planet. This is the same Mississippi Comeback Sauce from our previous Kidney Bean burger recipe and it’s just as delicious here.

Ingredients (makes 4 patties)

Burger

  • 1-15 oz. can black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed (or 1 ½ cups fresh cooked)
  • 1 Tbs. ground flax mixed with 3 Tbs. waterMeatless Monday vegan black eyed pea burgers
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 small bell pepper, diced
  • 3 scallions, finely sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbs. fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. dried mustard powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 dashes hot sauce or to taste
  • 1 tsp. gluten-free, vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 – ½ cup chickpea flour
  • 1 Tbs. safflower oil

Mississippi Comeback Sauce

  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. ketchup
  • 1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbs. chili sauce, hot sauce or Sriracha, or more to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. vegan, gluten-free Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp prepared yellow mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. In a small bowl or cup, mix the ground flax with water and let sit for 5 minutes until it is a gloopy gel. Mash 1 cup of the black-eyed peas with the flax gel in a large bowl. Try to mash them so there are none left intact.
  2. Add the brown rice, bell pepper, scallions, garlic, parsley, spices, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce to the bowl and mix until all the ingredients are well-combined. Add in the flour little by little, mixing well with your hands, until you have a good consistency. You want it dry enough so that the burgers will hold together but not so dry, there is no moisture left at all. Throw in the remaining whole black-eyed peas and gently mix them in so they stay somewhat intact. Do NOT form the patties. Place the entire blob of black-eyed pea burger mix into the refrigerator and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  3. When you are ready to cook, remove the mixture from the fridge and make the patties. Divide the mixture into 4 patties. Using a 3 ½” cookie cutter ensures a perfectly formed, dense, thick burger patty.
  4. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the patties until browned, about 6 minutes per side. You may want to flip them carefully several times to ensure that the inside cooks while the outside doesn’t burn. Serve on a bun with your favorite toppings and Comeback Sauce or atop a bed of greens. Enjoy!

Sauce

  1. Put all ingredients into a food processor and mix until smooth.
  2. Refrigerate in a covered container until ready to use. Use as a burger topping or a salad dressing.
