Black Bean Patties

One of our favorite restaurants serves an awesome black bean patty appetizer.  We love them but I have never really thought about making black bean burgers or patties at home.  I don't really know why.

Black Bean Patties:

1 small onion, diced
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 carrot, peeled and cut into small cubes
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper to taste
1-2 tablespoons olive oil for frying


In a large bowl, add the black beans and mash with a potato masher until almost smooth. Add the onions, garlic, carrot, bread crumbs, paprika, ted pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.  Mix together.

Form bean mixture into patties, approximately ½ inch thick and fry patties in 1-2 tablespoons of oil until firm and crispy.
