Vegetarian Sliders

As promised, here's the recipe that Boyfriend-Fellow's mom gave me for making Black Bean Burgers.

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 bell pepper, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 egg
1 tbsp. chili powder (*careful with this... they can be spicy*)
1 tsp cumin
1/2+ cup bread crumbs (I substituted oatmeal when I made this later)

Preheat the oven to 375
Mash black beans with fork until thick and pasty.
Stir diced pepper and onion into the beans.
Mix egg, chili powder and cumin in a separate bowl.
Stir egg mixture into bean mixture.
Mix in bread crumbs (or oatmeal!) until the mixture is sticky and holds together.
Divide and form into 4-6 patties.
Bake for 10 minutes on each side or grill for 8 minutes on each side.


To make sliders, I just made smaller patties and baked them for about a minute less.
 (this is how much doubling the recipe made)

For the buns, I used whole wheat dinner rolls cut in half 
and I added grilled onions plus a wedge of blue cheese....


Let me know what you think if you try them!


  1. I'll definitely be trying these out sometime.

  2. I will let you know! They're going on my grocery list... now!

  3. These sound incredibly delectable. (I tried to figure out how to combine incredible and delectable, but all I can think about is a slider - or 3 - right now)
