These black bean sliders are super flavorful and are sure to satifsy a carnivore’s appetite! I first learned how to make black bean burgers from Elysian Brewery’s recipe, but I changed some of the ingredients and preparation a bit each time I made them.

Black bean sliders are great in mini burger buns, (like I suggest in the recipe,) you can put them in a pita, or add them to a bowl of super foods. We have even crumbled them on top of nachos, and it was super tasty!

  • 2 c black beans, cooked
  • 4 white or baby bella mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/4 c chopped carrot
  • 1/4 c chopped onion
  • 1/2 jalapeno, de-seeded and chopped
  • 1 4 oz can diced chiles
  • 1 t chili powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 egg, whisked, (to use half of the egg, and get both yolk and white, whisk it in a dish, and then use half.)
  • 1/8 c heavy cream
  • 2 c panko bread crumbs
  • 1 c flour, for dredging
  • vegetable oil, for frying the sliders

optional buns/ toppings

  • 16 slider buns
  • sliced cheese of choice
  • roasted red pepper
  • lettuce
  • guacamole
  • salsa


  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine beans, mushrooms, carrots, onion, jalapenos, chiles, chili powder, salt, egg, and heavy cream, until well combined. In a large bowl, combine the bean mixture with panko bread crumbs. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.

  2. Form patties with about 1/8 c of the mixture into round discs. Dredge in flour, and shake off excess flour. This recipe makes about 16 patties.

  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium. Cook patties in batches for about 3 minutes on each side, or until browned. Allow to drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.

  4. Serve with buns, and toppings. Enjoy!
