5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. The Vegetarian Peapo-burger is a combination of black eye (pea)s and (po)tatoes, hence the name "Peapo”. I wanted to try something different than the traditional black bean burger so I thought of using black eye peas for a change. I usually use mashed cauliflower for a veggie burger base, but instead I decided to substitute mashed potatoes. What I like about this recipe is that it is simple and does not require a blender or food processor, just a spoon/fork for prepping the recipe. Vegetarian Peapo-Burger came out of my quest to discover a healthy "meat-less" burger recipe that's low sodium, low fat, no cholesterol, high in both iron and fiber, "gluten free", has great texture (won't crumble), and absolutely positively, delicious! Tip: Please remove as much water as possible from the potatoes and black eye peas in order to extract excess moisture.
