Because these crispy bean cakes are broiled rather than fried, the recipe doesn't call for much oil, so the cakes contain less fat; they are also easier to make.

2 tablespoons coconut oil
4 scallions, thinly sliced
6 garlic cloves, pressed
2 pepper jalapeno chiles

Recipe Directions for Spicy Black bean sweet potato cakes

  1. Heat broiler. In a small skillet over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cook scallions until softened, 1 minute. Add garlic, jalapeno, and cumin; cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Transfer to a large bowl.

  2. Add beans to bowl; mash with a fork or a potato masher, leaving about 1/4 of the beans whole. Season generously with salt and pepper. Fold in sweet potato, egg, and breadcrumbs. Divide into 8 balls of equal size; flatten into patties.

  3. Brush a baking sheet with remaining tablespoon oil; place patties on sheet, 1/2 inch apart. Broil 4 inches from heat until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. With a thin metal spatula, carefully turn cakes. Broil until crisp, 2 to 3 minutes more. Serve with Lime Sour Cream.
