Curried Black Beans Patties with Yogurt Sauce

These Curried black beans patties are so tasty; sautéed onion and garlic combined with the curry powder bring up a nice flavour. These patties are so good for lunch. I like to eat them as a sandwich with whole wheat pita bread and some of the yogurt sauce. 

1 can black beans, drained
1 cup white onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, grated
¼ cup brown rice, cooked
1 tsp. cumin powder
1 to 2 tsp. curry powder
Salt and pepper
2 tbsp. olive oil
¼ cup cilantro leaves, finely chopped (optional)

Yogurt Sauce:
1 cup natural yogurt
1-2 tbsp. lime juice
½ cup cilantro, chopped


Begin by sautéing the onions in 1 tbsp. of olive oil for few minutes, and then add garlic and sauté for a minute or two more. Turn of the heat and set aside to cool down.

In a food processor, add beans, the cooked onions and garlic, cumin, curry, salt and pepper. Pulse until just combined.

Next add the cooked rice and cilantro and pulse to combine.

With your hands, take balls and flatten to form 2 inch patties or any size you like. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Meanwhile, prepare Yogurt Sauce. In a bowl, whisk together all ingredients until smooth. Cover and refrigerate.

Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook patties for about 3 to 4 minutes per side until crisp and lightly browned. Try not to overcook them.

Serve warm with yogurt sauce.
