Black Bean Cakes
- Active Time 15m
- Total Time 15m
Makes 4 servings
- 2 cups cooked or 1 can (19 ounces) black beans, drained
- 1/4 cup (packed) cilantro leaves
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 4 scallions, green and white parts, thinly sliced
- 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
- 1/4 cup (or more if needed) dry breadcrumbs, or dehydrated mashed potato flakes
In a food processor, puree the black beans with the cilantro leaves, cumin, chili powder, oregano, salt and sour cream. Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and add the scallions, red bell pepper and enough breadcrumbs to bind the mixture tightly.
Form the mixture into twelve 2-inch disks and dredge them in the cornmeal.
In a large non-stick skillet, heat the vegetable oil. Cook the cakes for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until the cornmeal is browned. Serve immediately garnished with sour cream, cilantro and diced red bell pepper.
