These mini vegetarian black bean patties are perfect slipped into slider buns or on their own dipped in ketchup. 


2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
2 carrots, finely chopped
½ cup red onion, finely chopped
½ cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten
2 teaspoons chili powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper


Before you begin: Wash your hands.

  • Place 1½ cups of the black beans into a large bowl and mash well using a fork or a potato masher. Add in the remaining black beans and the rest of the ingredients and mix very well.
  • Scoop ¼ cup out at a time and form into a patty. Repeat for the remaining patties.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Spray the skillet with either cooking spray or a teaspoon of oil. Place the patties a few at a time into the skillet and cook until browned on each side, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Remove from skillet and enjoy as is, or on slider buns with various toppings such as onions, lettuce or tomatoes.
