Ingredients

    1 1/3 cups long grain rice, rinsed
    1 2/3 cups water
    1 cup chunky salsa
    1 shallot, minced
    1 cup TVP granules
    1 1/2 cups cooked black beans
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 red bell pepper, minced
    1 tbsp chili powder
    1 tsp smoked paprika
    1 tsp oregano
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    2 tbsp potato starch
    1 egg + 1 egg white, beaten

Directions

Bring rice, water, and salsa to a boil in saucepan over medium-high heat.
Cook, uncovered, 5 minutes.
Stir in shallot and TVP, reduce heat to low.
Cover and cook until rice and TVP are tender and water is fully absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
In a large bowl, with a potato masher, crush black beans, garlic and red pepper.
Stir in rice mixture, spices and potato starch, mixing well.
Fold in beaten egg and egg white until well incorporated.
Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425 and line 2 baking sheets with parchment or foil.
Form large balls out of the bean mixture (you should get around 24) and place on the sheets.
Bake 15-18 minutes, until hot and crusty.
Serve alongside a green salad or crunchy coleslaw.
