Black-eyed peas with chipotle remoulade

Susan, from FatFree Kitchen, has done it again - her recipe for Black-eyed pea cakes with chipotle remoulade looks tasty and low-fat, making it a must-try for the near future. I've never done black-eyed pea cakes, but I do use a chipotle/mayo mix occasionally as the base for pizza (equal parts vegannaise and vegan sour cream, plus added chipotle, as much as you like & adobo) and think the use of silken tofu in the place of mayo and sour cream is maybe brilliant (this last innovation, from the what do I know? blog. I say yum!

Chipotle Remoulade

2-3 canned chipotle peppers, plus a spoonful of the accompanying sauce
1 package (12 ounces) silken tofu
2 tablespoons soy milk
juice of 1 lime
a dash of salt

Place the chipotle peppers in the bowl of a small food processor. Whiz for a few seconds until they are chopped. (You may have to scrape the sides down.) Add the tofu and whizfor 2 minutes, until tofu is smooth and no longer grainy. Add the soymilk, lime juice and salt as you’re whizzing.
