Black beans are also CHOC A BLOCK full of fibre. One single cup serve of black beans provides you with 15 grams of protein and 15 grams of fibre. Why should you eat fibre? Because you don't want to get colon cancer, that's why. Fibre feeds the right kind of bacteria in your digestive tract. It also act like a broom, cleaning your insides from all the old junk that gets deposited in your colon. Both those actions contribute greatly to the health of your colon.
This recipe yields about 8 good size patties. You will probably need 2 per person if served with salad or 1 per person if served in a bun in which case you might want to half the ingredients.

Through together a quick salad, fry 1 or two black bean patties and you've got dinner under 15 minutes.
