I just cooked  one pound of black-eyes( Rancho Gordo Heirloom Beans) in my slow cooker and wanted to do something besides eating them with mustard(which is actually delicious). Here ia a recipe for burgers that is easy to make. We enjoyed them with mustard between 2 slices of tomatoes, but you could eat them on a bun with all the fixings if you prefer.


  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup red or green diced sweet peppers
  • 2 TBSP flaxseed mixed with 4 TBSP of water.
  • 2 cups of cooked black-eyes, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup polenta raw
  • 3/4 tsp powdered thyme
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1.5 tsps smoked paprika
  • generous olive oil for frying the burgers


  1. In a cast iron pan, saute onion in 2 tsp olive oil. Add a sprinkle of salt, the garlic and peppers. Cook on medium heat still they glisten.
  2. Combine flax seed meal and water . Place briefly in freezer to thicken.
  3. Add black-eyes to cast iron pan. Heat and mash with a Machacdora (a wooden bean masher)
  4. Put the mashed bean mixture in a bowl iwth the chilled flax eggs, the polenta, thyme, pepper , salt and smoked paprika. Mix well.
  5. Put bowl in freezer for 10 minutes.
  6.  Form patties and put in an oiled cast iron pan on medium heat. Cook 5 minutes on each side..
