How to Make Pinto Bean and Brown Rice Cakelets

  • Soak dried pinto beans and cook until tender.
  • Mash the beans and rice and mix them together along with all the other ingredients, except the oil.
  • Heat oil in a cast-iron or non-stick skillet.
  • Take small lumps of the pinto-bean-rice mixture and shape into patties, just 1.5 inches across or a little bigger, even burger-size, if desired.
  • Place them in the hot oil and cook each side for about 2 minutes or until nicely golden-brown and crusty.
  • Drain on a paper towel to soak up any excess oil and serve hot.
