Ingredients

    1 tsp ground cumin
    2 large cloves garlic
    1/4 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
    2 Tbls Egg substitute
    2 Tbls Panko Bread crumbs( or comparable bread crumb)
    1 15oz can black beans- well rinsed and drained
    1/4 cup fat free mayo
    2 teas fresh lime juice
    1/2 teas mild tobasco( the green one- unless you LIKE hot!)

Directions

I make this in a big mortar and pestle and grind the cumin, cilantro and garlic into a paste- but you can finely chop everything- or blend it smooth it that's easier. Once those 3 ingrediants are smooth- I add the egg substitute and stir to get all the paste out of the crevices of the mortar. Then add the black beans and bread crumbs and with a fork mash into a loose paste. I divide the paste into 4 equal servings on a plate and chill until ready to cook( but at least 15 or 20 minutes)

Meanwhile mix mayo, lime and tobasso and set aside.

WHen ready to serve- In a non-stick pan sprinkle a little corn meal - spray with pam and place patties into pan. Cook 3-4 min per side over med high until a light crispy coating forms( try to tuen only once to prevent breaking.

Warm the salsa( you should have a smooth style rather than a chunky one) PLace on the bottom of a watm salad plate- Place 2 patties on each plate then drizzle with aioli and yum it down!

Serving Size: makes 4 patties- a serving = 2 patties
