|Directions||Heat 1 T of oil and sauté the onions, stirring occasionally, until they soften, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg and sauté for two more minutes.
Transfer to food processor along with beans, rice, and peppers. Pulse repeatedly, until mixture is chopped but not puréed.
Transfer to bowl, add remaining ingredients, and mix well. Taste and adjust seasonings.
Shape into patties, adding more bread crumbs if necessary.
Fry in 1 T oil over medium heat until crust forms, about 4 minutes per side.
