  • Bean cakes in lettuce wraps or corn tortillas

    Super ez recipe! Very healthy and filling.
    Dairy free, gluten free, no added oil, lotsa fiber, all whole foods, and vegan

    1 can beans drained and rinsed (I use pinto, black, or kidney beans)
    1/4 cup water
    1 cup dry oatmeal (not instant)
    1/2 cup or more shredded raw carrots or sweet potato
    1/2 cup roasted and peeled red bell pepper(optional)
    1/4 cup minced parsley or cilantro (optional)
    Salt, or pepper, coconut aminos, or any herbs and seasonings that you like

    Rinse and drain beans then put in glass bowl with 1/4 cup water
    Microwave til very hot
    Mash the beans with a potato or bean masher, or a large fork or large spoon
    Mix in everything else
    Season with salt, pepper and other herbs to taste
    Put in fridge for 1 hr or overnite to set

    Preheat oven to 425 F
    Line a cookie sheet or other oven safe pan with parchment paper
    Make bean cake patties whatever size you like ( I make mine about 3 in diameter) and arrange with space between each on parchment paper
    Place in oven and Cook for about 15-20 mins then turn them over and cook another 15 mins or so til both sides are browned and toasty outside , but still soft inside. You can also cook them in a preheated non stick or iron skillet no oil needed, but I've found the oven baked on parchment paper turn out better.

    Eat them hot or let cool. They're great at room temp and even cold. They travel well when packed for a lunch to go, even without an ice pack they are fine for several hours.

    I serve them in romaine leaves or corn tortillas. Topped with avocado, shredded cabbage, and whatever kind of topping you want. Roasted red bell pepper sauce in lieu of hot sauce works great. .

    Dairy free roasted red bell pepper sauce:

    2 Red bell peppers, roasted, skinned, and deseeded
    2 cloves roasted garlic (optional)
    1/4 cup raw unsalted cashews or raw unsalted sunflower seeds, soaked in water for 30 mins to soften

    Drain cashews or sunflower seeds. Put everything in blender and purée til smooth. You may need to add a small splash of water, maybe not. (If you add too much water you can always thicken it by cooking it down In a saucepan). Salt to taste if you use salt.
