The Challenge: Vegan Brown Rice + Black Bean Sliders
Sliders named for well sliding through you. But in reality they are just mini-burgers! I wanted to do a brown rice forward slider that is mixed in with black bean, chipotle adobo sauce, and fresh corn. A really fresh slider that isn't dense but is protein-forward and beautifully balanced.
But sliders aren't sliders without a delicious sauce. We mixed up a miso mayo. That miso tang really takes this fresh slider over the top. We pair it with some fresh mixed greens and cucumber slices for an absolute treat.
How do we make sliders without eggs? Easy! Breadcrumbs, salsa, and vegetable broth coming together make this really great sticky blend that holds the rice, beans, and veggies together. One of my goals with every vegan burger is to make sure they don't fall apart. If you notice its too sticky/wet, add more breadcrumb. If its too dry, add more salsa.
Finally, we put this between a Hawaiian roll. I love these. The famous ones aren't vegan, but most stores have many choices that are vegan. They have a sweetness to them and are super doughy. They balance the tang of the sauce and the spicy salty slider.
Bake up the sliders rather than fried. In the end, we have a perfect handheld bite ... yum yum yum!
