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.
