We're here to help you with your good questions and your recipe searches. Here's one from Jake. Can you help him?
Just recently, I just went to a local organic restaurant and they had a black bean pancake on the menu. Intrigued, I ordered it and absolutely fell in love with it! It was savory and even more delicious with the serving of guacamole and salsa that was served with it. Since then, I have been looking online for a recipe but they were just not quite right.
Have you come across anything such as this and a recipe I could use?
Jake, it's hard to say without any more description. Was it a thick, meaty patty? Or a thin crepe-like pancake? Was it filled with black beans, or was the pancake itself made with beans?
Here are a few recipes we found online, but maybe readers can pitch in with their own favorite recipes.
