I'm going to a Halloween party thrown by a friend of mine, a vegan, and when I find a recipe like this I put it to memory (and now to blog) so I can make something tasty, easy, and fatty for everyone and not just myself to enjoy.
(above) You will NEED to soak the yellow split peas overnight until soft. Biggest step.
(above and below) The mixture when finished should resemble cold stuffing or wet-ish breadcrumbs.
Shape is hardly important though.
Be a little quick about putting them in the pan; the first few will help you figure out how hot you need your oil to be. I'd say about 350 degrees; hot enough you're not boiling the chili cakes in oil but cool enough it's not gonna blacken them by the time you're done spooning them all in.
Just ask one of my dogs below as she waits for one of these babies to fall off the spatula.
By the time they arrive to the party they'll be a little cold so I know they'll still be good but I'm going to try heating some up in the oven and I have a feeling they'll come out just as good. Wish me luck and let me know if you make your own, I'd love to see how they come out.
