1/1 Photo of Cuban Black Bean Patties
What's Cooking?'s Note:
This is my adaptation of a recipe from Cooking Light Magazine (03/07). These black bean burgers are a delicious vegetarian entree and reheat very well in a toaster oven or in a pan. I recommend serving them with rice, greens, salsa and sour cream. Be careful to fully drain the beans and cook the patties long enough so that they will stay together.
