How to Make Black Bean Cakes w/sour cream sauce


  • 1Bring chicken broth to a boil in a medium sized sauce pan, when it comes to a boil add the cornmeal and stir quickly to saturate the meal, you may add a bit of water if it needs it but it should be like a thick paste.
  • 2Cook for about 1 or 2 minutes and careful not to scorch it. Take it off the stove and put it in a large mixing bowl.
  • 3Add the rest of the ingredients except the oil for frying and combine everything until well mixed.
  • 4Shape into patties (you may work with the size but dont make them too large or they are hard to flip over without breaking them during cooking. I usually make them about 2 inches across. (dampening your hands makes them easier to shape)
  • 5Heat enough oil in a frying pan to coat bottom nicely and place patties into hot grease, fry on both sides until golden brown, remove from oil and drain on a paper towel while you fry the rest. You may have to add more oil during this process.
  • 6Serve them immediately with sour cream and or salsa
