Black Bean Cakes with Guacamole2012-06-01
This recipe is full of health benefits, and it’s yummy! As I mentioned before, avocados contain Vitamin B3 which protects our skin, and research has shown that black beans are good for our digestive tract. This is one of Ryan Louise’s Recipes. I’ll post the website at the bottom if you want to check it out!
1 tbsp. of Lime Juice
1 pinch of Salt
1 pinch of Pepper
1/4 cup(s) of Bread Crumbs
1/4 cup(s) of Fresh Chopped Garlic
1 tsp. of Cumin
3 tsp. of Olive Oil
1/4 cup(s) of Chopped Tomato
15 ounce(s) of 1 Can of Black Beans
For the guacamole:
Mash the avocado in a small bowl. Stir in lime juice; season to taste with the salt & pepper. Cover and put in fridge until ready to use.
Open, drain, & rinse can of black beans. Put into bowl with bread crumbs, garlic, cumin, and olive oil.
Mix by hand (or you can use either a food processor or potato masher) until all ingredients are well blended.
Add a little olive oil to a nonstick or stainless steel pan. Form bean mixture into 4 or 5 patties; about 1/2 inch thickness.
Turn heat on medium to high and when oil is hot, add the patties. Cook 5 minutes both sides until they are heated through and are browned.
To serve; top the patties with the guacamole from fridge and the chopped tomato.
