Preheat the oven to 300°.
To make the Black Bean Cakes: Place the beans on paper towels to soak up the excess moisture. Bake the beans on a cookie sheet for 20 minutes. Let cool.
In a food processor, combine the beans, margarine, cilantro, shallots, garlic, Creole seasoning, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
Form the bean mixture into patties. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry the cakes for 4 minutes, until browned and crispy, then flip and cook on the other side. Drain on paper towels. Serve with the Lime-Peppered "Mayo."
To make the Lime-Peppered "Mayo": Mix the vegan mayonnaise, the lime juice and the jalapeño in a bowl. Season with the salt and pepper and refrigerate until ready to serve.
