Some years ago, I started making black bean burgers. It's a great recipe for Meatless Mondays. And, they are so easy to make, and you can pretty much make them for a quick meal during the week, especially when you forget to pull something out for dinner. Basically, all these items come from the pantry. So, today I am going to share a recipe called the red pepper black bean sliders recipe.
Easy to Make Red Pepper Black Bean Sliders
Simple Ingredients from the pantry and fridge:
30 oz cans of Black Beans - this total is usually two cans of cooked black beans
6 tsp Egg Whites - You can also use an egg substitute if you want.
2 Tbsp Oregano dried - you can use fresh if you want.
2 tsp Basil dried - Try fresh if you want.
1 small onion - make them small chopped pieces so you do not get a large bite of onion.
1 tsp of Granulated Garlic - if you have fresh garlic, add a little more than a teaspoon.
1 cup Panko bread crumbs - you can also try to use the Italian bread crumbs for more flavor.
½ cup Roasted Red Peppers chopped - I got these from the jarred section at the grocery store.
Easy Instructions to make black bean burgers:
Using a potato masher, mash black beans in a bowl. Then, mix the rest of the ingredients together.
Using a large ice cream scoop, scoop out a heaping scoop of the mix. Then, form into a small burger. You can make 10 slider burgers with this combination.
Below is what the burgers looked like after I pressed them down before they were sprayed with non-stick spray.
Preheat grill. Then, spray each patty with a non-stick spray and then place the sprayed down on the grill or the burgers.
While they cook, cut cheese slices into 4 small squares. Make 14 small squares.
Cook the sliders for 5 minutes on the grill. Then turn over 5 minutes. Then, add the cheese. And start assembling the slider burgers.
Some additional notes about this recipe:
If you decide to make this gluten-free, be sure to adjust the gluten-free quantity. It will take a lot less than you may think than regular bread crumbs.
If you use egg substitute, mix it really well and follow the ratio listed on the back of the container.
Some side dishes that will go will with this are:
Below are the finished red pepper black bean burgers. What do you think? If you want to put one or two in one bun or make two separate slider sandwiches.
Below is the burgers stacked on a platter. This is great for serving the entire family and then some.
For the toppings, I then mixed Olive Oil Mayonnaise and Sriracha sauce. I used baby spinach as the lettuce. This is a great weeknight grilling recipe for the spring through the fall season.
