    We followed the recipe exactly, and chose Cannellini for our white beans. Simple to make - lots of chopping and juicing, but no meat to cook, so time saved there. I was afraid it would be too spicy with the red pepper and whole jalapeno, but it wasn't hot in the slightest. If you like things spicy, don't seed the pepper, or use a hotter pepper. We had it with fresh fruit and some chips. I think I'll eat the leftover filling with pita chips! It wasn't a knock-my-socks-off, can't wait to make it again kind of meal, but it was a simple fresh dinner that I enjoyed and felt very healthy eating.

    Terribly disappointing. The bean patties had mediocre, bland flavor, and the texture was awful.

    I agree with Janene in that "it was a simple fresh dinner that I enjoyed and felt very healthy eating." The spiciness was just right for my tender tongue, but my husband, who likes a lot of heat, said he didn't taste any spice. A lot more food than I expected, too. Not sure to what "bean patties" Matt is referring, though...
