In a medium bowl place the beans, onion, garlic and parsley.


Smash the beans with a fork while mixing the ingredients.

Seasoning the mixture and mix it again.


Heat the olive oil in a small fry pan to a medium heat.

Add the mixture and cook it for 2-3 minutes.

Shake the pan to avoid from stick the cake in the bottom of the pan.

Cover the pan with a plate a little bigger than the pan, press the plate with your hand and turn it up side down.


Now you have the cake in the plate facing the cooked side.

Add a little olive oil if necessary and use a spatula to place the uncoocked side of the cake in the pan to cook it for 2-3 minutes as you did before.
