These Black Bean Sliders are easy to make, good for you and taste so good!  (The directions are for slider size, but it’s super easy to increase the size to make Black Bean Burgers instead.)

Homemade Black Bean Sliders

I have a food bucket list…

It sounds kind of silly, but there are just so many recipes I want to cook! The difficult part is just finding the time (and energy) to make them.

As I was going through the recipes of my assigned blog for the Secret Recipe Club I noticed Jennifer, of Mother Thyme, had a recipe for Black Bean Sliders. (She has a crazy amount of recipes on her blog, you should check them out if you have time.)

Black Bean Sliders are definitely on the food bucket list. I frequently buy the Spicy Black Bean Burgers from Morning Star Farms and my family loves black beans, so I knew this was the recipe I wanted to make.

They were so good! The consistency was a little different than the store bought versions (softer in the middle) but they were just as good. My daughter ate two, and my son (who had strep throat) ate his entire slider!

I made the sliders almost like Jennifer’s, but I omitted a few of the spices and did not make the Avocado Mayonnaise (I am not a mayo person.) We did have some leftover guacamole, so we topped our burgers with that.

This is what the cooked patties looked like up close…

  1. Heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and onion and saute until onions are tender. Remove from heat and set aside.

  4. I didn't realize it could be so easy to put together a vegetarian burger! Thanks for the great idea- I can't wait to try it out!

  5. Black bean burgers (or sliders in this case) are to die for! I have a standard recipe that I use all the time – they're satisfying, delicious, easy and a fantastic source of protein. I like that this one has corn – especially because it's coming into season right away 🙂 Note to self…

    Happy SRC Reveal from a fellow group C member!

  6. Wow I have a lot of vegetarian friends who will love this. Also will make a great lent recipe.

  7. Until I joined SRC I had never made a bean burger, then I made a red bean burger for one of my reveals and we loved it. I'll have to add this black bean one to my food bucket list, and yes I have one also!

  8. These look so healthy! I've never made straight black bean burgers before, but I have mixed them with ground beef. Maybe I'll get adventurous next time 🙂

  9. These look great. I have never made a homemade black bean burger either, but I definitely want to give these a try!

  10. I don't think any SRC member would think a food bucket list is a crazy thing 🙂 I made black bean burgers last month for the first time – aren't they awesome? Yours look AMAZING!

  11. HUGE fan of black bean burgers but have never tried making them before – might have to change that! Great SRC pick 🙂

  12. Those look delicious! I love Black beans and I love black bean burgers, Yum. I hear you with the food bucket list…You should see my recipe collection. It's huge. There is no way I can ever use all all them but I can't part with my cooking magazines. There are just too many good recipes to try. Eventually. 🙂

  13. I buy the black bean burgers from Costco all the time. I've never even thought to try to make my own. (picture me shaking my head at my own stupidity.) Those look wonderful! I can't wait to try them.

  14. How funny we had each other's blog this month! 🙂 LOVE that you choose these black bean sliders. I haven't made them in a while, but now I think I need to add these to my dinner menu soon. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

  15. These look so good – and summery! I will put this on my to-try list for this summer. I'm visiting from Group A since I stepped in to rescue an orphan. It's nice to meet some new bloggers.
