GF White Bean Chive Cakes with Heirloom Tomatoes

When you’re forced to change the way you eat, sometimes experimenting with new food is a massive failure [1]. Other times I find my new fave meal/appetizer/travel snack, like with these white bean and chive cakes, and all the hockey pucks I’ve baked become a distant memory.

I love this inspiring recipe from Tasty Yummies (she calls them patties, I call them cakes because they make me as happy as eating cake) thrown on top of some greens, served alongside some marina sauce, atop a juicy tomato slice, or just eaten hot off the griddle. You must make sure your cornmeal for this rad dish is gluten-free, as some of them can be sneaky. But once you’ve purchased your bag of g-free cornmeal, think of all the things you can do! Oh, the cornmeal places you’ll go.

Also, do you know what rocks when you can’t eat gluten? Crusts. And this cornmeal makes such a lovely crust I’m thinking about throwing it on everything I eat from now on. Even beaver [2]. First you toss the gluten-free cornmeal on this:

Fry it in olive oil, like this:

Shove it in your mouth, like this:

Here’s how you get a g-free delight that will turn you into a white bean & chive cake addict. You’ve been warned.

Gluten-Free White Bean & Chive Cakes

adapted from Tasty Yummies [3]

Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 8 minutes


2 15-oz can organic white beans
1 shallot, finely diced
1 medium carrot, finely grated
1/3 cup yellow cornmeal (more if your mixture seems too wet)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 large heirloom tomatoes, sliced

1. Drain beans, reserving 2 tablespoons liquid. Transfer to a bowl and mash. Stir in shallot, carrot, cornmeal, and chives. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1 tablespoon reserved liquid. If mixture is too dry, add the other.

2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil. Form mixture into patties (about 2 1/2 inches diameter each) and saute in batches until golden brown and crisp, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining oil and patties. Serve with atop tomato slices or straight up.

Makes: 20 cakes
