  • Zest of 1 lime 
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • 1 19 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed 
  • 1 egg, or 1 tbsp ground flaxseed meal and 2.5 Tbsp water, mixed and rested for 5 minutes

Method: 

Preheat oven to 375’F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In the bowl of a food processor, add all veggies, herbs and spices. Pulse until chopped small but not a paste. Add black beans and pulse again, just until broken down, some beans should remain visible. Spoon into a large mixing bowl and fold in egg/breadcrumbs and adjust seasoning. Using lightly damp hands, divide in to 6 equal balls, and flatten slightly, place on parchment sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, flip and bake for another 10-20 minutes until golden and feels “set” when pressed lightly in centre. Assemble and enjoy immediately or refrigerate and reheat as desired up to 5 days.
