Ingredients

FOR THE SAUCE, PURÉE:

FOR THE BURGERS, SWEAT:

MASH:

Canned peas are convenient, but if you can get your hands on fresh blackeyed peas, cook them according to your favorite recipe, then turn them into burgers.

Instructions

For the sauce, purée onion, chopped garlic, mayonnaise, 1/4 cup oil, ketchup, chili sauce, Worcestershire, lemon juice, and 2 tsp. mustard; season with Tabasco and black pepper. Refrigerate sauce up to two weeks; bring to room temperature before serving.

For the burgers, sweat bell pepper, scallion greens, minced garlic, and thyme in 2 Tbsp. oil in a skillet over medium heat until softened, 3 minutes; season with salt and set aside.

Mash 2 cups peas with egg whites in a bowl until nearly smooth. Stir in cornmeal, 2 tsp. mustard, 4-6 dashes Tabasco, remaining whole peas, and bell pepper mixture. Form mixture into four patties and chill 10 minutes or up to 30 minutes.

Sauté patties in remaining 1 Tbsp. oil in same skillet over high heat until browned, 5 minutes per side. Serve burgers on ciabatta rolls topped with 1 Tbsp. sauce and Sautéed Greens & Tomatoes.

Once mashed to nearly a purée, the peas form part of the binder to hold the burgers together.
