This dish is packed with protein and rich in amino acids. Balance it with an accompanying brown rice or millet pilaf.

(Serves 4)


■  1 ½ cups cooked red kidney beans, mashed

■  ½ cup pressure cooked brown rice

■  1 small onion, chopped

■  2 tsp parsley

■  1 tbsp olive oil

■  Sea salt or rock salt and pepper to taste


■ Saute onions in 1 tbsp of olive oil. In a mixer, combine beans, brown rice, parsley, salt and pepper and sauteed onions. 

■ Blend well, by pulsing the mixer and do not blend entirely, as this adds some character to the croquettes. Shape into croquettes.

■ Pan fry by smearing a little oil (preferably a high heat oil like Canola or Olive) on either side.
