Made these for the first time last night, inspired by the spicy bean cakes at my favorite local diner. These are cheaper & better.
Black Beans Cakes
1 15 oz can reduced sodium black beans, drained & rinsed
1 egg white
1/4 cup bread crumbs (I used a day-old French bread loaf)
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 slim scallions, sliced thin
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
In a medium bowl, use a fork to mash 1/2 cup of the beans with the egg white. Then add the bread crumbs, seasonings, & scallions, combine well, and place in the fridge for 10 minutes.
Heat the olive oil in a thick-bottomed pan over medium-high heat. Remove the bean mix from fridge & form into four equal-sized patties. Place patties in the heated pan, and cook 5 minutes each side.
Serve with scrambled eggs & salsa.
