I made these last week for the boys when they came over for know, the health nuts!! These were excellent! ...and a great source of protein without the meat! I served with balsamic roasted potatoes and asparagus (recipe to follow) for an absolutely wonderful meatless meal!

Black Bean Cakes (Burgers)

Go vegetarian—and like it—with these hearty and delicious patties from Emeril Lagasse and his new cookbook, Emeril 20-40-60: Fresh Food Fast


1small onion, finely diced
7 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic
2 (15.5 oz) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 tsp salt, plus more to taste
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp hot sauce
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbsp Creole seasoning

How to Make It
1.) Cook onion with 1 tbsp olive oil in saute pan until lightly caramelized. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds more.

2.) In a bowl, mash beans with back of a fork until smooth. Stir in cooled onion mixture, cilantro, egg, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, and hot sauce. Mix well.

3.) Shape into patties and dust with flour and seasoning.

4.) Heat remaining oil in a nonstick skillet. Cook patties until golden on both sides.

5.) Optionally, top with tomatoes, sour cream, or guacamole.

Serves 4

Added Tips
— If the bean mixture is too soft to form into patties, let it cool for 10 minutes.

— To make Emeril's classic Creole seasoning, mix together 2 1/2; tbsp paprika, 2 tbsp salt, 2 tbsp garlic powder, and 1 tbsp each black pepper, onion powder, cayenne pepper, oregano, and thyme.
