Black Bean Patties with Spinach and Cashew Nuts

Black Bean Patties with Spinach and Cashew NutsThe following black bean patty is one of the most nutritious recipes I've made in my kitchen. It not only tastes great but easily digests as well. Generally, we prefer a potato base for a typical patty preparation. But, there are several other ingredients as well that can be used as a base. Black beans are rich in protein and when combined with spinach, they're simply irresistible. I've also include coarsely ground cashew nuts in this patty. They not only make it bit crunchier but also help in holding the entire patty. The leftovers of these patties can be added to spicy gravy with a thick consistency. You can also add dried mint and fresh coriander leaves to enhance the flavor of this crunchy and delicious preparation.
