Black Bean Cakes1
These black bean cakes are crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. The secret is Panko bread crumbs, which are used both inside and outside. The batter is made of finely chopped onions, garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper and black beans blended in a Magic Bullet blender, which is then dipped in flour, egg and Panko bread crumbs and fried until golden and crispy on the outside. These black bean cakes go great with avocado, sour cream and cilantro and can be served as an appetizer or side dish. I also like to top salads with them!
