Black Bean-Brown Rice Patties


We like to serve these patties with romaine (drizzled with olive oil and squeezed with lime), sliced avocado and red onion, and fresh cilantro leaves.

  • One 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 3/4 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno, stemmed, seeded, and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon flaxmeal
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Pulse ingredients in a food processor until combined and season with salt.

  2. Divide mixture into six portions and form into 1-inch-thick patties. Arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and bake until tops are golden and crisp, about 20 minutes.
