Black Bean Fritters

This is one of my go to meals when I’m in the mood for a vegetarian dish that is still packed with protein. Black beans are one of the highest beans in Protein and regardless of that they are so versatile and can be used in so many ways.. fritters being one of my favourite! A serving of these fritters provides 17g Protein.

I love the combination of flavours in this dish…the tangyness of the lime, the spice from the chilli and sweetness from the Tamari. Its a dish to me that is perfect in the summer. This recipe makes around 6 fritters. I tend to to use three per portion and then often have the leftover three for my lunch the day after which is very handy! The fritters to me work best in a salad topped with halloumi and avocado as pictured. However, I’ve also had them on a portobello mushroom to make up a burger with a side of sweet potato fries.
