These are easy little patties that can work as a snack, or turn into a meal when served on a bun like a burger. I still sometimes need to trick my son into eating beans… but tasty patties like these make it easy!


  • 1 (15-ounce) drained and rinsed can black beans
  • 1/2 cup cooked white rice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  1. Place the beans in a bowl and mash until mostly smooth. Add the rice, chives, cumin, garlic powder, and breadcrumbs, stirring until combined.
  2. Shape the mixture into 8 or 9 small patties.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the patties, working in batches, and cook for about 4 minutes on each side, until crisp and golden.
