Peas Patties with Mugwort

Mugwort or artemisia vulgaris has a slightly bitter aroma that goes very well with the sweetness of peas. A vegan recipe that will please everybody.

Makes 3

100 gr drained cooked peas
10-20 gr plain flour
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1 pinch of salt and pepper

Oil for frying

In a blender blitz together all the ingredients – if the mixture looks too loose add a bit of flour.
Once smooth rest the mixture in the fridge for about half an hour.

Heat the oil in a shallow frying pan; drop a heaped tablespoon of the pea mixture into the hot oil. Cook for 2 minutes and turn over. Do this a few more times until the patties are cooked through (at least 10 minutes.
