Black Bean and Edamame Sliders

Here’s the veg answer to Sloppy Joes—edamame lightens up a black bean mixture to keep these sliders from tasting too dense.



Ingredient Line: 
1 cup frozen shelled edamame
Ingredient Line: 
1 clove garlic
Ingredient Line: 
1 ½ cups cooked black beans, or 1 15-oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
Ingredient Line: 
1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, drained and minced
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup coarsely chopped cilantro
Ingredient Line: 
¾ cup plus 1 Tbs. prepared fat-free barbecue sauce, divided
Ingredient Line: 
1 ½ tsp. ground cumin
Ingredient Line: 
¼ tsp. salt
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. olive oil
Ingredient Line: 
12 small whole-wheat dinner rolls, split like buns
Ingredient Line: 
4 oz. reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese, cut into 12 slices


1. Bring small pot of water to a boil. Add edamame, and cook 10 minutes. Drain.

2. Process garlic in food processor until minced. Add edamame, black beans, chipotle chile, cilantro, 1 Tbs. barbecue sauce, cumin, and salt. Process until mixture forms coarse paste.

3. Heat oil in saucepan over medium-low heat. Add edamame mixture, and heat until hot, stirring occasionally.

4. Spoon 1 Tbs. barbecue sauce onto each bottom bun. Top with bean mixture, cheese, and top buns.

this tasted real good and everyone loved them

These are amazing. They have become a staple dish in our home. They are easy to make and always sure to please.

This was seriously delicious!!!!

Wow! These were excellent! Finally, a vegetarian sloppy joe alternative that isn't just tomato paste. Highly recommended and very quick to prepare.

yum. haven't tried it yet, but in my meat eating days of long ago, i loooooved sloppy joes. can't wait to try it! thanks guys

Made tghese for supper tonight. Thery were quick and easy to make and tasted great. With a fresh fruit salad, they made a nice meal. Everyone in my family loved them.

Just made these. They were really good. I skipped the BBQ sauce (can't stand the flavor) and just used a little of the black bean liquid and some jalapeno hot sauce for moisture. Also, bonus tip... I didn't need to make so many sliders so I put the leftover mixture back in the processor for another spin and made a great bean dip! :)

Made these for the Superbowl! The game itself was boring (Seahawks blowout), so the sliders were the star of the show! BRAVO!

I have made this recipe countless times and it never disappoints. It's fairly inexpensive, easy/quick to put together, and very delicious & filling. My meat-lover boyfriend says it's one of his favorite meals! I usually don't tweak the recipe at all, although we might add a dill pickle on top. We pair the sliders with something different every time, as it is goes well with many types of sides!

Sounds really good but at 8 WW points per slider,I'm not sure. But I bet its delicious!
