 Creole Red-Bean Patties - Makes 12 2 1/2 inch patties
 4 cups cooked red or pink beans, drained	1/4 tsp cayenne
 4 green onions, sliced thin			Tabasco to taste
 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped			1/2 tsp thyme
 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley			1/4 tsp garlic powder
 about 1/2 cup apple fiber
 In a food processor or blender, combine beans, onions, red pepper, 
 parsley, cayenne, Tabasco, thyme, garlic powder, and 1/4 cup of
 the apple fiber.  Process until smooth.
 	Place remaining apple fiber in a shallow bowl.  Dipping your
 hands in the apple fiber, shape the bean puree into patties about 
 2 1/2 inches in diameter and 3/4 inch thick.
 	Spray a skillet with Pam or Baker's Joy and heat.  Cook
 patties for 5 minutes on each side.

 NOTES:  I find that my blender doesn't work very well on stuff like
 this, maybe cuz it is cheap, and my food processor isn't out here,
 so I just mashed it all with a potato masher.  It wasn't smooth,
 but I liked the texture and it was yummy.  I put it on a whole wheat
 roll with ff mayo, ketchup (sp?), lettuce, tomato, and onion.  It
 was quite filling.  Oh, and I made a much bigger patty than this
 serving size, it was a little bigger than a typical hamburger bun.
 With this size patty, I would say this recipe makes about 3 patties.
