"This recipe makes 12-13 small fritters. They are a perfect appetiser, although larger fritters can be made as main meal. One serving is approximately two fritters. The range of spices makes these fritters extremely delicious and irresistible and the cheese makes for a soft bite. The lightly mashed beans gives the fritters a lot of texture, however, if you would prefer a smoother fritter you may choose to blend the beans in a food processor. Any shredded or thinly sliced cheese can be used."

    • 1 bowl

    Place all black beans from the can into a bowl. Lightly mash the beans using a fork until a thick, yet still highly texturized consistency forms.

    Into the bowl with the beans, crack in the egg and mix to combine.

    • 1 frying pan (small, with lid)

    In a pan, heat up oil on medium to high heat. Once hot, add four tablespoon sized dollops of the bean mixture spread out onto the pan. Shape using a spoon to make each fritter circular.

  • Step 6/ 10

    Allow the fritters to cook on one side for 1-2 minutes on medium-high heat.
