    Quick Black Bean Patties

    Everybody loves these tasty, crisp little patties. You can serve them plain or with salsa, and they make nice party bring-alongs: prepare to be asked for the recipe.

    One 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
    1 large potato, diced and cooked in boiling water until tender, then drained
    1/4 cup grated onion
    1/4 cup grated carrot
    2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley leaves
    salt and freshly-ground black pepper to taste
    1 cup dry bread crumbs
    1/4 cup olive oil

    1. Put beans, potato, onion, carrots, parsley, salt and pepper in a food processor and pulse until well blended. Divide the mixture into 4 portions and shape into 4 patties. Coat each patty evenly with breadcrumbs and set on a baking sheet. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

    2. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Cook patties until golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels and serve with salsa on the side, if desired.

    Serves 4.
