Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was quite good and very flavorful. This was quite good and very flavorful. You do not need to soak the beans, I just substituted three cans (15 oz) of black beans and it worked great-even the food processor bit! It was so good that we all had between four and six cakes, not the listed two per serving. Definitely recommend this for a great vegetarian meal!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This recipe gets NO STARS for black bean cakes. This recipe gets NO STARS for black bean cakes. I followed the directions exactly - the beans were undercooked, everything fell apart in the pan, I had a trashed kitchen and nothing edible to show for it. At least that night. I mixed some eggs in with the fallen apart cakes and gave my husband a 'southwest scramble" for dinner. Not wanting to waste the huge amount of food I just prepared, I packaged my bean & rice mixture up in 2 cup servings with my food saver and threw it all in the freezer. two weeks later I found a ham bone in my freezer. wanting to do something different for dinner, I put it in a pot with this bean mix and enough water to cover it all. after cooking for a while with some added ham meat salt & pepper, this made one of the most AMAZING soups! I tried it again with a chunk of frozen ham meat and another 2 cup portion of this and it was so yummy. My husband is worried because we only have two packets of this left and he loves it so much. I will make this recipe ag

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful! Awful! I followed the recipe exactly and they were terrible! They fell apart in the pan and were completely bland. My husband and I were excited to try these as we love black beans, but I would definitely not make these ever again.
