A Delicious, Veggie Twist on a Classic Slider? Yes, Please!

Recipe makes 4 sliders

Ingredients

  • 1-2 teaspoons olive oil (or oil of your choice!)
  • 1 medium shallot, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • spices – 2 teaspoons each of ground cumin & coriander, pinch of cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire (or soy sauce or tamari)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste (or ketchup)
  • 1 tablespoon grated beet (optional – for color)
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup black beans, cooked & drained (you will use 1/2 cup at a time)
  • 1 “flax egg” (1 tablespoon ground flax + 3 tablespoons water)
  • 3/4 cup cooked red quinoa (you’ll use 1/2 cup, then 1/4 cup separately)
  • salt & pepper
  • toasted whole wheat or gluten free buns
  • Toppings: lettuce, red onion, tomato, shredded cabbage, jalapeños
  • Optional: Spiced Ketchup and Chipotle Mayonnaise

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° with a metal baking sheet inside.
  2. In a small bowl, stir flax & water together and set aside. This will act as your “egg.”
  3. Heat oil in a medium skillet. Add the shallot, garlic, a few good pinches of salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes until translucent. Add the dried spices, stir, and cook for 30 seconds more.
  4. Add the Worcestershire, balsamic, tomato paste, grated beet, walnuts and 1/2 cup of black beans. Stir and cook for another few minutes and turn heat off.
  5. Let cool slightly, and then add the contents from the pan to a food processor. Add the flax “egg” and blend until everything is cohesive. (It does not need to be perfectly smooth).
  6. Transfer the mix to a bowl and stir in the remaining 1/2 cup of black beans (smash them a little as you stir), and 1/2 cup of the quinoa. Stir until blended, then divide into 4 segments and roll into balls.
  7. Place the 4 balls on a plate and sprinkle them with the remaining 1/4 cup quinoa. Gently roll them so the quinoa coats the outside of the balls, and then press each in the palm of your hand to form patties.
  8. On a parchment paper lined plate, chill for 20 minutes.
  9. Transfer the parchment paper with your patties onto the pre-heated baking sheet. Drizzle a little olive oil on top and bake for about 15 minutes. Flip and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes until the outside is not mushy.
  10. Let cool and serve with fixings of your choice like lettuce, onion, and spiced ketchup.

Enjoy!
