A recent trip to Cocso and I'm now the proud owner of a large stockpile of black beans. That has sent me combing my cookbooks for meal options using this healthful and versatile ingredients. Keeping what I find here for quick and easy access until I have a chance to try them. The original recipe for these delectable cakes included a tablespoon of chorizo, though I intend to make them vegetarian. These can also easily be made vegan with the use of a little soy yogurt. Serve these as a substantial appetizer or along with a lovely green salad as a light meal or lunch. With the chorizo, these are 3 points per serving. The recipe can easily be modified to be Core. The cakes also freeze well for reheating later.
