1x1.trans Meatless Monday: Spicy Black Bean and Sweet Potato Patties

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 large egg white
1 small sweet potato, diced
1 shallot, diced
1/2 orange bell pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small hot pepper (serrano or jalapeno) minced
Canola oil
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 T. rice flour

Placed drained and rinsed beans in a large bowl.  Add egg white.  Mash with a potato masher until about half of the beans are mashed.  Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Add sweet potato, shallot, bell pepper, hot pepper, and garlic.  Saute until softened- 5 minutes.  Remove from pan into the bowl with the beans.  Wipe skillet clean.

Mix together the beans and veggies.  Add in seasonings and flour.  Form into 4-6 patties and place on a wax paper lined baking sheet.  Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour to firm up the patties. 

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat with enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan.  Cook patties in batches of 2-3 depending on the size of your pan (you do not want them touching).  Cook patties for 3-5 minutes per side until nice and crispy.  Top with fresh cilantro.
