Croquettes de haricots noirs

Hey readers I moved my blog click here for my new blog

I did not have a clue of what to pair my quinoa with . I mean it is complete in itself so it was ok but I need extra protein. I decided to crack open a can of black beans which I was trying to avoid and make something strong that could pair with the light cold salad. I may pair gluten slices with it next time. I really enjoyed quinoa for the first time in a long time and black beans which I tend not to like too much. I am a big red bean fan.

My French is really improving. I am even writing letters and emails in French. If I see an increase in French visitors to this blog I would post the French and English versions to the recipes.That is a big IF.

1 can of black beans drained

some salt to taste

pinch of cayenne pepper

some bajan seasoning optional

chopped shallots (in France they call it eschalots I hope I am referring to the same thing)

crushed garlic

little tomato paste


black pepper

yeast flakes

The breading you mix some wheat or gluten free flour and some sesame seeds ,breadcrumb and some more yeast flakes

I use a little bit of olive oil to grill these and I served with salsa

I do not think it would be a good idea to pair this with quinoa but we wanted it so who is stopping us.

I would pop these in some pita with salad and avocado instead

They are full in flavour trust me and if you are like me add some extra pepper lol

Looks great! I actually have everything at home to make those, too :)

Congratulations on your increased mastery of French. Je suis très impressionné! (my French is pretty lousy, btw)

And congrats on the improved French!
