Vegan Black Bean “Sausage”

I had full intentions to make vegan sausage using whole, canned black beans; however, the distractions of a busy super market got the best of me, and I grabbed canned refried black beans.  I've outlined how I made the best out of my purchase.  I have to say…they turned out pretty darn good!

Free of gluten, dairy, soy, and animal products.

Recipe:

1 Can refried black beans

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup sesame seeds

Onion powder, garlic powder, sage, smoked paprika, cracked red pepper, salt and pepper to taste (because I hate following recipes)

About 1 tbsp fennel seeds (less if you prefer, but I really like fennel, this is what gives sausage the taste of sausage)

Spray skillet with cooking spray and heat to medium.  Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and form small patties.  Cook on medium until the top is dark brown or slightly charred.  Makes about 15-20 small patties.
