Black Bean Cakes with Ginger-Cilantro Cream

Photo: Iain Bagwell; Styling: Ginny Branch  

The black bean mixture is delicate. Turn cakes gently, as they may fall apart. If they do, don't worry--you can press them back together. Serve with a simple salad of lettuce, sliced cucumbers and radishes, and carrot ribbons.

Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: 1 patty and about 1/4 cup sauce)
