Split Peas Carnitas

Best Blog Tips

These are very simple but extremely tasty and savory. You can use them for sandwiches, as sidekick to any thing like potatoes or baked yams, you can top them with your favorite sauce and serve them with rice, enjoy!

1 cup cracked wheat, cooked until it is soft
1 cup green split peas, cooked till soft
3/4 cup Old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1 tsp. onion powder (or to taste)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder (or to taste)
Salt to taste
3/4 tsp. Italian Seasoning or tarragon powder, if you have any
1 1/2 tsp. Vegan Chicken Style Seasoning
1 1/2 tsp. olive oil + more to cook with

Note- When you cook the cracked wheat and the split peas, reserve a bit of the water so that you can use it to combine the ingredients.

In a bowl, put the cracked wheat, the split peas, and add the rest of the ingredients and seasonings. Combine well, adding the water you have reserved, little by little until you have a mixture that is neither too runny nor too stiff.

Heat a skillet that has been barely "painted" with olive oil and drop the mixture into the skillet by large spoonfuls. When the edges start to get golden, flip them. Cook them till golden brown on both sides.

These are ideal with seasoned potatoes, sweet potato fries or butternut squash fries for cookouts!

You always share such delicious looking recipes with us for Healthy Vegan Fridays. I love the idea of all the "patty" type recipes because I'm always looking for something extra for dinner than plain beans. Thanks so much, I'm going to make these this week!
