These vegetarian black bean cakes are seriously delicious. Stuffed with black beans, plenty of spice, and fresh cilantro - they make a perfect meatless meal or side dish. I like to serve them with a fried or poached egg (Southern style) over a bed of sauteed greens but they also make a great burger. You can swap out the black beans for any other canned bean as well if you don't have black beans on hand.

Instructions

(Hide Photos)
1

Add half the olive oil, egg, and black beans to a food processor. Pulse until a thick, coarsely chopped paste is formed.

2

Add this mixture to a bowl with half the breadcrumbs, green onions, cilantro, garlic, cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper. Stir until combined. Divide into patties. I like to use two smaller patties per serving.

3

Dredge the black bean patties in the remaining breadcrumbs. Heat remaining oil over medium high heat. Add patties and cook for 3-4 minutes per side.
