Black Bean and Edamame Sliders

Black Bean and Edamame Sliders

Makes 12 sliders

30 minutes or fewer

Here’s the veg answer to Sloppy Joes—edamame lightens up a black bean mixture to keep these sliders from tasting too dense.
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 ½ cups cooked black beans, or 1 15-oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, drained and minced
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  • ¾ cup plus 1 Tbs. prepared fat-free barbecue sauce, divided
  • 1 ½ tsp. ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 12 small whole-wheat dinner rolls, split like buns
  • 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.

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!

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

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! :)
