|black bean goodness|
black bean cakes (for two)
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 red pepper, chopped
1 tbsp garlic, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 15oz can black beans, rinsed
salt & pepper
2. mash all but 1/3 cup black beans and add 1/2 of onion/pepper mixture (reserve other 1/2 for topping).
3. toast the reserved 1/3 cup beans in 1 tsp olive oil for a few minutes (season with salt, pepper and additional garlic if you want).
4. add toasted beans to mashed beans/onion/pepper mixture. form patties - you should be able to get approximately 8 small cakes.
5. saute cakes in remaining olive oil over medium heat for a few minutes on each side until browned. season with more salt & pepper. (beans can be bland, so be sure to "layer in" seasonings.) fyi: cakes will be soft (like mashed potato texture) with a thin crispy shell.
