This is an easy recipe to make ahead and freeze. I love having a recipe that I prepare once and can later pull another meal from the Freezer. Here is a delicious Black Bean Cake Recipe that is nutritious and easy to make. Serve with salsa, sour cream or corn relish for a yummy meal.

This recipe has the advantage of using items that can be found in your pantry for a quick spur of the moment dinner.

See recipe for a full list of ingredients.

In addition, you can switch ingredients if necessary and still achieve a delicious tasting Black Bean Cake. I recently didn’t have jalapenos so I added additional red Pepper flakes and it was still yummy.

If you plan to freeze your patties, I recommend rolling them into a ball for storage. Once they thaw, you can easily press into the preferred patty shape.

Because there are only two of us, this recipe is more than needed for one meal. I prepare all the patties and freeze all that will not be needed for the current meal. Here is a Chicken Enchilada Recipe that makes a large amount and freezes well.

Just be sure to label your freezer bag and these will still taste delicious for up to 6 months.
