3 cloves of chopped garlic
1 medium vidalia onion
1/4 cup of corn
1/4 cup of red bell peppers chopped
1/2 cup of medium salsa
1 can of black beans rinsed
1/2 - 1 cup of fine cornmeal
1 tsp of ground cumin
1 tsp of cilantro
Saute onions and garlic until onions are transparent. Add red peppers and corn and saute for a couple more minutes. Rinse black beans and buzz about 3/4 of can in food processor with 1/2 c of salsa and place in a bowl. When vegetables are sauted, place in food processor and buzz to a creamy consistency. Add to bowl with beans. Add whole beans, cilantro and cumin and mash everything together. Add cornmeal to make mixture stick together. I added a bit more than a cup to where I felt it would make patties.
I made 16 small patties (cookie size). Placed them on my baking stone and baked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. (15 minutes each side)
I served with a simple guacamole, romaine leaves and roma tomato slices.The rice is a rice blend and a can of tomatoes and chiles.
