These are Alice’s Black Bean and Corn Patties. I made them for dinner tonight and they couldn’t have been easier. In fact the hardest thing about making them is lugging out the food processor. I was a little worried that they would be hard to handle, but the patties held together very well.
I followed Alice’s recipe without any modifications, but as she suggests you could do all sorts of variations on this theme by changing the beans and/or vegetables, not to mention the herbs! I’ve tried those frozen Boca Burgers before and just couldn’t get excited about them. Not so with these, they are delicious! They are just a little crisp on the outside, moist on the inside with a little crunch from the corn and onion, and ever so slightly sweet from the corn and cornmeal. Thank you Alice!
