What to do:
1. Bring 2 c. of water to boil in a large saucepan. Add rice, turn heat down and simmer 30-40 min. Drain any excess liquid.
2. Meanwhile, place drained beans in a large bowl. mash thoroughly using the back of a fork or potato masher. Set bowl aside. Heat butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. When melted, add onion and jalapeno. Cook 3-4 min., stirring often. Add portabella, cremini and button mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until mushrooms are almost dry. Stir in flour and cook 2 more min. Remove from heat and, when cooled to room temperature, fold mixture into the mashed beans.
3. Stir egg, mayonnaise, warm cooked rice, cheese, lemon juice, cilantro and cayenne into mashed beans. Fold in shiitake mushrooms, crab and scallions (the mixture will be sticky).
4. Portion into 24 mounds by packing mixture into 1/4 c. measure or small ice cream scoop, arranging in a single layer on a baking sheet. Use a flat-bottomed mug or large glass to flatten each mound into a 2-3-in. patty. Sprinkle with half of the panko crumbs, pressing in lightly. Use a spatula to carefully turn each patty. Sprinkle with remaining panko.
5. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a non-stick 10-in. skillet until hot over medium heat. Working in batches, cook patties 5-8 min. or until well browned on both sides, adding oil as needed. Keep warm until ready to serve.
