Korean Butter Bean Patty
This butter bean patty recipe is an adaptation of a common type of Korean tofu patty side dish DuBu Jeon. Instead of using tofu, Aeri uses butter beans which can be used from the can or soaked and boiled until soft. If you are not a big tofu fan but like Korean patty dishes then this is a great way to replace tofu. The creamy, nutty flavor of the butter beans combines well with the garlic and hot pepper. This is indeed a wonderful appetizer and or side dish idea.
