Thread: Cooking help, please?

  1. Default

    I decided to be daring this morning and tried to make a Black Bean Croquette. I saw a recipe in my local newspaper, but it was too high in fat and calories...plus I didn't have many of the ingredients. This is the recipe I came up with instead:

    1 Can Black Beans, rinsed and drained (3.5 pts)
    1 Can green chilies, drained
    1 Tablespoon Veggie broth
    1/2 Medium onion, finely chopped (.5 pts)
    2/3 cup Old Fashioned Quaker Oats (3 pts)
    Old Bay Seasoning
    Cooking Spray

    Mix all ingredients together and scoop out by 1/4 cup. Mold into patties and "fry" in cooking spray on medium heat.

    Makes 7 croguettes at 1 point each.

    They actually turned out pretty darn well, if I do say so myself. However, I think they need one more ingredient to give them some "oomph", if you know what I mean . Are there any good cooks out there that could give me a tip? I love to cook, but I never really venture out on my own (stick to recipes). Thanks in advance!

    PS If anyone would like the original recipe, I'd be happy to post it. I think it came up with a total of 12 croquettes. Serving size was 3 at 5 points.

    I bet some yellow or orange bell peppers would go great in this. I'd love the recipe!

    You're right! Bell peppers would be so yummy but, alas, my husband can't stand them. He's says it's a "texture" thing :rolleyes:. Thanks so much for the response though! Maybe I'll just make them for me only
