Heat a non-stick frying pan over high heat and saute the mushrooms until golden. 

Allow to cool then place in a food processor or blender with the cowpeas, 2 tablespoonfuls of the KNORR minestrone soup, the eggs, and flour. Using wet hands, roll tablespoonfuls into balls. 

Reheat the non-stick frying pan and add a little oil. Add the mushroom balls and saute, turning every now and then, until golden.
