Celebrity Adzuki Bean and Rice Cakes

Tonight for dinner I made the Celebrity Adzuki Bean and Rice Cakes from Dreena Burton's Vive le Vegan! The recipe calls for adzuki or another small bean. We used black beans.

These were AMAZING. Everyone loved them, kids and all. We ended up with about double the amount we could eat for dinner. That excites me even more. I'm already dreaming of lunch tomorrow.

I would definitely put these in our top 20 list of favorites. This recipe is going to get a lot of use. I think I would even sub these as veggie burgers. They have a lovely crispy outside and a great inner texture. I think I might even freeze one to see how well it holds up. If every thing goes well, in the future I'll double the recipe and have them on hand in the freezer.

Yea Dreena Burton!

I'd been wanting to make those, but never seem to have adzuki beans on hand. Great to know that htey turn out well with black beans since I usually do have thosed stocked. Yum.
