Kala (Black-Eyed Pea Fritters from the Dutch Antilles)
Made this recipe for the first time last night with several changes. I used a bag of frozen black eyed peas, thawed in water with a 1/4 cup dehydrated minced onion. Pureed this in blender, then added a tablespoon minced garlic, a teaspoon of dried thyme, the salt, cayenne pepper (also used black pepper). I skipped the egg whites and used 2 tablespoons of flax seed meal instead. I also added 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, and fried the fritters in coconut oil. They were so delicious! My vegan daughter got mad after the first bite because she thought they were crab cakes, which they sort of tasted like. My diners flipped when I told them the fritters were made of black eyed peas. I served them with a vegan mac and cheese and steamed broccoli florets.

Eggless Chocolate Cake II
Delicious! No one knew that it was an eggless recipe except me. I made cupcakes without frosting, and they disappeared quickly. Thank you for the recipe!

This is a wonderful shrimp bisque that impresses every time I've made it. Well worth the effort!
