• 250g nyimo (black-eyed peas), cooked

I have never been a fan of nyimo since I was wee high!! But after deciding to give them a bit of a kick, I’ll proudly say I’m a nyimo-lover!! IF they are made in this way or any other way, as long as they’re not plain! My husband on the other hand has always loved them and he also especially enjoyed these patties. I served them with a salad and some sauce drizzled on them as a light supper. These will be perfect for vegetarians as well.

Resources/Equipment You Will Need

  • Bowl
  • Potato masher

  1. Get your ingredients together. These include 250g nyimo (black-eyed peas), cooked; 1/2 small onion, chopped; 1/2 tsp salt; 1/2 tsp white pepper; 1/2 medium green pepper, chopped; 3 cloves garlic, chopped; 2 tbsp soy sauce and 3 tbsp pure cooking oil.
