  1. Pureé black-eyed peas in a food processor, or use a potato masher.

  3. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, and brush with a small amount of olive oil.
  4. Form the pea mixture into 10 balls, each the size of a well-rounded teaspoon. Flatten the balls between your hands and set four or five in the skillet. When brown flip gently and brown other side. Repeat with remaining cakes.
