Black bean sliders, from Gael (Veggie Sloppy Joes)

Black bean sliders, from Gael (Veggie Sloppy Joes)

--From Vegetarian Times March 2011. Made these Feb. 19, 2011, and we loved them. Much better than most veggie burgers and fast to make if you have edamame.

1 c frozen shelled edamame
1 clove garlic (or pre-minced refrigerated)
15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
barbecue sauce (best quality, the flavor really comes through)
1 tsp cumin
1/4 t salt
1 tsp olive oil
Small whole-wheat slider buns
Reduced-fat cheese

Bring small pot of water to a boil. Cook shelled edamame 10 minutes. Drain.

Mince garlic in food processor if fresh (if pre-minced in the jar, just put it in and add other ingredients at once.)

Add edamame, beans, 1 T barbecue sauce, cumin and salt. Process to coarse paste.

Heat 1 tsp olive oil in medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add mixture from food processor. Heat until hot, stirring occasionally.

Spoon 1 T barbecue sauce onto each bottom bun. Top with generous spoonful of bean mixture, piece of cheese of your choice, and top bun. You can briefly microwave to melt the cheese.
