SPICY BLACK BEAN CAKES
1 small onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbs water
2 large scallions, sliced
4 oz. can diced green chiles
2 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced
2 tbs chunky salsa
7 oz. box instant black beans
1 cup boiling water
optional garnishes: shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced black olives,
nonfat sour cream
Lightly spray a skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Saute onion and garlic in
1 tbs water over medium-high heat until water evaporates and vegetables begin
to brown. Toss in scallions, chiles with liquid, tomatoes and salsa; mix well
and turn off heat.
Add beans and boiling water to skillet. Mix well, scraping the veggie mixture
up from the bottom of the skillet. Allow to stand until beans have absorbed
liquid, about 10 minutes. Form into 6 patties.
Spray clean, heated skillet with nonstick cooking spray and add patties. Saute
until patties are crisp on one side; turn and saute other side.
Garnish as desired.
