Looking for the perfect Meatless Monday meal? These spicy vegetarian sliders are tough to resist, even for your meat-loving friends. Brown these delicious, flavorful and moist patties either on the backyard grill at a summer barbecue, or indoors in a skillet for a weeknight dinner. Or make miniature black bean sliders as an appetizer that vegetarians and carnivores will clamor for!


  • 1-15 ounce can organic, low-sodium black beans – drained well
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic – minced
  • ¼ cup green onion – sliced, reserve a few for garnish
  • jalapenos – diced, optional
  • 1-2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • lime wedges – garnish
  • 6 Grainless Rolls


  1. In a medium sized mixing bowl add black beans.  With the back of a fork smash about ¾ of the beans into a paste.  Add to the bowl cumin, garlic, green onion, and jalapenos.  Form beans into 6 patties, the same diameter of your biscuits.  Set aside.
  2. Pop rolls in the oven now. Grill the grainless rolls.
  3. In a medium sized skillet heat EVOO over medium heat.  Once hot, add bean patties and cook until browned about 5 minutes, flip and brown the other side.
  4. Serve immediately on Maximized Grainless Rolls or your bread of choice rolls. Garnish with green onion, a lime wedge, and your choice of yogurt sauce or mayonnaise, etc.
