I am a mom of 4. I love to cook and try new recipes.
Every once in awhile a new recipe is tried and the family often responds with "mom..it's a keeper" meaning add this one to the family recipe book. So here I've compiled them all in one spot so they're easy to get to and add to. Hope you enjoy them as much as we have, and maybe they'll be keepers for you as well.

Rice and Corn cakes with Spicy Black Beans

serves 4

I got this recipe from a April/May 2005 Eating Well magazine.  The crispy corn cakes and side of black beans made a complete meal, super filling and the kids loved it.

1 c. short brown rice
2 c. water
6 scallions, trimmed and sliced
2 t. minced garlic
1/2 t. dried thyme
16 oz. canned corn, drained
1 c. panko bread crumbs
1/2 t. sea salt
1/4 t. black pepper
3 t. egg replacer
4 T. warm water
4 t. coconut oil, or olive oil
15 oz. black beans
1 c. homemade salsa, or canned salsa
1 avocado, sliced (optional)

cook rice, scallions, garlic and thyme in 2 c. of water.  stir and bring to a boil.  Reduce and simmer for about 10 minutes, until rice is cooked.

Mix in a sauce pan black beans with salsa and heat through.

In a separate bowl mix corn, panko, salt and pepper.  When rice mixture is finished add to the corn and panko bowl mix and mix well.  In a small cup mix 4T. warm water with 3 t. egg replacer, whisk well.  Add to corn mixture and stir well.

Take handful of mixture and make 8 patties.

Heat 2 t. oil in a skillet on med/high heat.  Add patties and cook until slightly browned.  Flip and cook on other side. 

Place a large spoonful of black bean salsa on a plate and place 2 corn patties on plate.  Top black beans with slices of avocado and serve warm.
