Black Beans and Brown Rice Patties

Leftover black beans, brown rice, plus baked or steamed potatoes come together to make these delicious patties. Simply add favorite spices, mash them together, and pan-cook to desired crispness.

Serve as bean burgers in mini buns with favorite fixings, or enjoy as-is with favorite dipping sauce or ketchup.

1 cup cooked black beans, drained well
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 medium potato, cooked
a few slices of bread, preferably heels :)
1 Tbsp coriander powder
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp sambal oelek or Tabasco™ sauce (or any favorite chili paste or sauce)
1 tsp garlic powder
salt to taste

A few tablespoons of Olive oil for pan frying

  1. Mash the ingredients together, adding just enough bread slices to make a dough that can be shaped easily; taste and adjust seasoning
  2. Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a pan, shape the patties and fry both sides till firm and done

    sheela, the balancing act is getting better. :) slowly a day at a time.. thanks for asking.

    nice patties!! This post of yours reminded me of an out of print cookbook - oh wow.. just it looked it up and it is available on Amazon.. so I guess very much in print! :)

    Vegetarian Burgers by Bharti Kirchner.. I have borrowed it from the library in the past and absolutely loved it. all her burgers were pretty similar to what you created and I was surprised to see such a huge choice and all very creative.
