garden marinara & pea fritters

Joe's been messing up the kitchen again ;-) This time he made marinara sauce with the garden tomatoes Brenden and Jennifer gave us. AND purple hull pea fritters from the bounty out back. They were similar to falafal but without the cumin.

Believe it or not, there's an actual Web site devoted to the wonders of the purple hull pea. Of all the recipes, fritters looked the most promising.

2 cups purple hull peas (mashed)
fresh parsley
1/2 an onion
ground red pepper
2 eggs

Drop by spoonfuls into hot oil. Turn when the first side turns golden. Drain on paper towels. I ate mine with ketchup. Joe had his with hot sauce.

They were very tasty, but the house still smells of fried stuff.
