Step 2 – in a glass bowl mix the wet ingredients together, add the chopped onion and garlic and the mashed beans to this mixture; in a separate mixing bowl add the dry ingredients and mix well to combine; finally pour the wet into the dry, using your hands mix well and knead for 3 minutes.

Step 3 – separate dough into 6 portions, work the dough into a 5 inch log; place on aluminum foil and tightly roll it up, twisting the ends to form the sausage; arrange the wrapped sausages in a steamer and cook for 45 minutes.
