Bring the black beans and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover partially, and simmer 60-70 minutes until beans are tender. Drain well.
Mash cooked beans and garlic in a bowl. Stir in the cilantro and salt. Form the mixture into 8 cakes. Refrigerate on a plate for 1 hour.
In a nonstick frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat and cook the cakes, 5 minutes each side. Serve immediately.
