Spicy Black Bean Patties

Aug 07, 2013 10:15AM ● Published by Arden Haley

Here is an odd piece of trivia for you: when the weather is hot, eat spicy foods to cool off. Spicy food makes you sweat and acts as a natural air conditioner. So what better a time for spicy foods than during late summer heat waves? These spicy black bean patties are just the trick. They are filling and have a great spicy kick to get you going.

Ingredients

2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 Tbsp. flax seed
1 jalapeño, chopped roughly
2 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp. tomato paste
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup corn
canola oil for frying

Directions

In the bowl of a food processor, combine jalapeño and garlic and pulse until minced. Add in one can of black beans and pulse until it looks like a chunky black bean tip. Add in the flax seed, breadcrumbs, tomato paste and corn. Pulse again until well combined. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the remaining black beans and stir to combine. Form the black beans into patties and place them on parchment paper. Head a skillet with little oil over medium high. Add four black bean patties to the skillet and fry for approximately 4 minutes until crusty and golden. Flip and repeat on the other side. Remove to the parchment. Repeat with the remaining patties.

Makes 8 patties.
