I only "discovered" Mexican food about a year ago....almost wish I had been born south of the border!! These are easy to make & quite tasty; they can be served as an appetizer or an entre with a crisp, green salad.
My adaptation of one in Vegetarian Planet by Didi Emmons. I like the colour and hearty flavour of this. It's a really satisfying substitute for meat in a burger. You may use canned beans which cuts down on production time.
These delicious hors d'oeuvres can be served anytime. You may prepare the patties in advance and refrigerate without cooking. Fry them when ready to eat. They can be reheated in the microwave oven (1 to 2 minutes) or in the conventional oven (10 minutes at 400 degrees F) or in a skillet. You can modify the vegetables and spices as desired. (From the cookbook 'Recipes with a Spice - Indian Cuisine for Balanced Nutrition' by Kusum Gupta)
This yummy, easy dish was a recipe of my grandmother, who lived to 103 years! It is great comfort food served over rice, on toast for a Sunday night supper, or for a weekend brunch. It also teams well with Chile con Carne for a buffet meal. Even people who don't normally like canned asparagus, enjoy it. Note: fresh asparagus is not suitable as a substitute.
