Black Bean and Walnut Croquettes

The picture doesn't do this recipe justice. Because it is coated in bread crumbs it has a crispy outside and a soft inside. It is so good. mmmmm. The hollandaze sauce is amazing. Absolutely Amazing. Like I said before I could bathe in it. The combination of these two is HEAVEN.

3/4 cup walnut pieces
3 green onions, chopped
3 tbsp fresh parsley, coarsely chopped
1 cup cooked or canned black beans
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 cup wheat gluten flour
1 tsp dried savory
Salt and Pepper
bread crumbs
2 tbsp olive oil

In a food processor, combine the walnuts, onions, parsley and process until finely ground. Add the black beans, soy sauce, flour, savory, and salt and pepper to taste. Process until smooth and well combined.
Use your hands to shape the mixture into 8 small patties. Place the bread crumbs in a shallow bowl, Dredge the croquettes in the crumbs until coated and arrange on a plate. Refriderate to firm up, about 20 minutes.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the croquettes and cook until browned on both sides, about 5 minute per side. Serve immediately.
I topped these with "hollandaze sauce". Recipe in previous post.
