Summer has been pretty busy with my kids. They liked this recipe I adapted 
from Romancing the Bean by Joanne Saltzman.

Black Bean and Rice Patties

1 cup cooked black beans
1 cup cooked long grain brown rice 
1/4 cup sweet red pepper, diced
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 tsp sea salt or to taste
1/8 tsp orange flower water*(see note)
1/4 tsp garam masala (Indian spice combination)
4 tablespoons crushed whole wheat crackers
1 green onion, diced
olive oil cooking spray for frying

Combine all ingredients together and mix gently but well. Shape into patties, 
or, if you wish, just fry the whole thing in one giant pancake shape. Spray 
the pan with olive oil cooking spray and brown the patties on one side until 
a crust has formed and then turn to brown on the other side. 

Note: If you don't have orange flower water, try using the same amount of 
orange or tangerine extract. (I did, with pretty good results.)
