Black Bean Sliders



Memorial day is the traditional beginning of summer. So the question is: what does a vegan eat on memorial day? Which is followed by the real question–Don’t you miss eating the flame grilled burgers and hot dogs? The answer is an emphatic NO! The reality is I eat better as a vegan than I ever did as a carnivore! Here is how I do it–



  1. Pre-heat oven to 400˚ and prepare cookie sheet by spraying with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

  3. Form into patties and place on oiled cookie sheet.

  4. Cover with aluminum foil and bake 20 minutes.

  5. Remove cover, flip patties and bake for 10 more minutes.

  6. Serve on a whole-grain bun with your favorite toppings
