    Beans, red kidney, 2 cup
    Egg, lightly beaten, 1 medium
    Onions, raw, .25 cup, minced
    Parsley, .25 cup , minced
    *Barbecue Sauce, 1-2 Tbsp
    Yellow Mustard, 1 tsp
    Yellow Cornmeal, .75 cup
    Olive Oil, 2 tbsp
    Salt, 1 dash
    Pepper, black, 1 dash

    Yogurt Sauce:
    Yogurt, plain, whole milk, 1 cup
    Garlic, 2 cloves minced
    Avocados, 1 whole
    Lemon Juice from 1/2 a lemon


Mash the beans (or run through food processor). I prefer to leave it somewhat chunky.

Mix in egg, onion, parsley, bbq sauce, & mustard. Add a dash of salt & pepper to taste.

Add cornmeal 1 Tbsp at a time until mixture is just stiff enough to work with.

Form into small 2-3" patties, rolling each in the remaining cornmeal to coat.

Heat 2 Tbsp Olive Oil in large skillet. Place patties in hot oil and cook approx. 4 minutes on each side until brown and crispy.

For the Yogurt Avocado sauce, mash the avocado, then mix in with garlic & yogurt. Add salt to taste if desired (not included in nutritional info).

The nutrition info is calculated per croquette w/ approx 2 Tbsp sauce. I typically have about 3 croquettes in a meal with a salad or roasted veggies as a side, and just track as 3 servings.
