Navy Cakes #Vegetarian #Food

“What the heckaroo are Navy Cakes?” I can hear you asking it, all the way over here in the back of beyond.

Well, I’ll tell you: Navy Cakes are what I made for supper the other night when I couldn’t think of a recipe I wanted to look up and decided to make my own.Navy CakesI took a can of Navy beans (that’s the Navy part) and mashed them up. Then I mixed in some Mrs. Dash seasoning blend, an egg, and enough chickpea flour (because I have some and because I love felafel) to hold it together. I made it into cakes (that’s the Cakes part), covered it with plinko — no, that isn’t it … panko! That’s it: panko. I covered it in panko and fried it in olive oil.

Boy, were they good! I plan to make these babies again, sometime, with whatever kinda beans we have sitting around in cans.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write something about the sea. Or a seafarer. Or seafood. Or something else.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I’m mostly up on potato cakes. Mash, egg, flour, and then cook. Yum.
