These Smokey Beans & Tomato Sliders are perfect for your Sunday Brunch. The Spicy Tomato & Garlic Sauce on the base makes them even more crave-able. The leftover patties can be frozen for a quick lunch the next day or even makes an easy & healthy dinner!!
When it comes to burgers, patties or quick sliders, most of us think only of aloo patty or veg patty as an option. But you can try various beans and legumes to make your patty and it tastes way better than the regular one. I personally love Falafels (Click here to see the recipe), because the chickpea, garlic and parsley make an amazing combination and tastes heavenly. Try and experiment with flavours and who knows you could create some magic on the plate like these Smokey beans and tomato Sliders.
Sunday brunch is something I always look up to. For me a win-win situation is when my plate looks absolutely gorgeous but the work behind it is minimal. This time I wanted to make sliders but with a twist. So here are these Smokey Beans & Tomato Sliders, which is the best thing I have made so far. They taste delicious and make you crave for more. I had two of these yet tempted for more.
The recipe is really simple. While preparing these sliders you need to make two things..one is the bean patty and second is the charred tomato and garlic sauce. You can go with any regular sauce or ketchup if you don’t have the time, but the charred tomato sauce just enhances the flavour and add a little spice to the sliders. You can even store and use this Charred Tomato and Garlic Sauce in a variety of other recipes. I may do a separate and detailed post on them soon.
Coming back to the process… all you need to do is mash the boiled beans, add onions, garlic, parsley, and other seasoning ingredients and fry it. You can even shallow fry them in a pan if you wish. For the sauce, you need to grill the tomatoes in the griller or just char them over the gas top after applying some oil, until they are soft. Then just deseed the tomatoes and puree them with some garlic and green chillies. Trust me it adds soo much flavour to the sliders. The recipe is versatile. You can add any vegetables of your choice to the patty or even add avocados or some greek yogurt with lime to enhance the texture.
P.S- I charred some cabbage on a pan and layered them in the bun at the bottom. Add the much needed crisp and smokey flavour.
Lets get started with the recipe now.
- FOR THE PATTY:
- 2 cups boiled and mashed kidney beans or black beans (soak them overnight or for atleast 5 hours)
- 1 red onion chopped
- 2 to 3 green chillies finely chopped
- ¼th cup cilantro or parsley finely chopped
- 2 to 3 garlic cloves finely chopped
- ½ tsp red paprika
- ½ tsp dry mango powder
- ½ tsp black pepper
- ¾ tsp salt
- ½ lime juice
- FOR THE SAUCE:
- 3 to 4 Tomatoes ( Grilled or Charred)
- 5 to 6 cloves of garlic (Charred)
- 2 to 3 green chillies
- Handful of coriander
- 1 tsp lime juice
- Salt to taste
- Cabbage leaves (Charred)
- Thinly Sliced Tomatoes
- Thinly Sliced Onions
- Your Favourite Bun (Could be whole wheat or regular ones)
- In a bowl, mash the boiled beans along with the rest of the ingredients mentioned in the patty section. Mix everything well. Take 2 table spoon of the mixture and form a round patty or any shape you desire. This mixture should make about 8 to 10 medium sized patties. Keep them in the refrigerator for about 15 mins before frying
- Grill the tomatoes in a griller or simply on a gas top. Once they are charred and soft, peel them and deseed them. In a blender blend together the tomatoes, garlic, green chillies, coriander, lime juice and salt.
- To assemble the sliders, slit the buns into two halves, in the lower half, add some charred cabbage, top it with a generous amount of sauce, then slices tomatoes and onions. You can even used sliced mushrooms if you like. Now top it with the patties. Add mayo or cheese to make it more delicious and you are good to go.
