Black Bean Cakes


You'll Need

Potato masher, large baking sheet, parchment paper, candy thermometer


  1. Mash drained beans with potato masher in mixing bowl. (Beans will not be entirely smooth.) Set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil, peppers, and onions in large skillet on MED. Cook, stirring, about 5 min, until veggies are soft and cooked through. Fold pepper and onion mixture into mashed beans. Wipe out skillet.
  3. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions. Form into 3-inch patties; place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet and place in freezer (uncovered) 30 min.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Whisk eggs and milk together in shallow bowl. Put flour and panko in 2 separate shallow bowls. Arrange in an "assembly line": flour, egg mixture, panko.
  6. Place each bean cake in flour bowl, coating well. Dip in egg mixture until well-coated, then dredge in panko until completely coated. Return cakes to egg mixture and dredge in panko a second time. Place cakes on work surface until all cakes are prepared for frying.
  7. Heat vegetable oil in large skillet to 350 degrees on MED (check with candy thermometer).
  8. Add cakes to pan; cook 3-4 min or until golden brown. Carefully turn over; cook other side 3-4 min, until golden brown. Drain on double thickness of paper towels.
  9. Place cooked cakes on baking sheet; bake 10-12 min or until heated thoroughly. Garnish with cilantro.
Chef Tips
Cakes can be made in advance through step 8 and refrigerated. Bake in 350-degree oven until heated thoroughly (about 20 min).
