Preparing the Beans Beans were in dry form Required overnight soaking Pressure cooker method – 15 min – Normal cooking time 3 hours
The Process of making our patty We tried two recipes for our first trial. Recipe one – Outcome was a dry patty with too much of a peppery taste. Recipe two – Outcome was a somewhat moist patty but still too much pepper. Goals for next trial – Reduce pepper and make a more moist patty.
Second trial We tried three recipes. We reduced pepper by half in all three. First recipe – Double the soy sauce to try to increase moistness and flavor. Second recipe – Reduce the corn flour by half to try to increase moistness. Third recipe – Reduce the corn starch by half to try to increase moistness.
Results of second trial The first recipe with double the soy sauce came out the best with increased moistness and flavor. Final product was made from recipe number one.
