I needed a hearty vegetarian recipe that would travel well. The first thing that came to mind was a black bean cake. The morning that I made them I turned them into a delicious huevos rancheros with an egg, salsa and cilantro garnish.
Black Bean Cakes
- 2 cans of black beans (rinsed)
- 1 can of diced tomato (drained)
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- big handful of parsley and cilantro
- 1 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
- 10 dashes of hot sauce
- 1 cup of fresh bread crumbs
- 1/2 an onion
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
Preheat oven to 375 F. Line your sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside. Add all ingredients listed to a food processor and pulse until just combined (you want it to still have texture!!). Form into 6-8 patties and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Serve as black bean burgers, or huevos rancheros as described above!
