    Zielle's Note:

    These are delicious bean cakes made out of white beans with a bit of a southwestern flavor. They can be served with some yummy salsa and a good leafy salad, or even put on a tostada shell with some other toppings of your choice. This is also a vegan recipe, as long as you make sure the vegetable broth does not contain chicken (as many usually do).

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Place the beans, broth, and lime juice in a large bowl. Use a potato masher to mash the mixture into a course puree. Stir in the cilantro, chile, chili powder, and salt and pepper to taste.
    2. 2
      Stir in 1/4 cup cornmeal. If the mixture is too sticky to handle, stir in more cornmeal until you can shape the mixture with your hands.
    3. 3
      Shape the mixture into eight 3-inch cakes.
    4. 4
      Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add the bean cakes and cook until nicely browned, about 4 minutes. Carefully turn the cakes and drizzle the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil around the edges of the pan. Continue cooking until the bean cakes are nicely browned on the se4cond side, about 3 minutes. Serve immediately.
