Ingredients
Black Soy Bean Patties
  • 1 Tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 15 oz cans of black soy beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ C organic bread crumbs
  • ½ C red pepper, minced (about 1 pepper)
  • ½ C white onion, minced (about ½ onion)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1½ Tbsp olive oil
Chipotle Avocado Lime Mayo
  • 4 Tbsp vegan mayo (or your mayo of choice)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lime
  • ½ tsp dry chipotle chili powder
  • ⅛ tsp salt
Toppings
  • 12 small dinner rolls
  • 1 C cherry tomatoes sliced into rounds
  • red onion broken apart into small rings, or roughly chopped
  • red leaf lettuce leaves
  • toothpicks
Instructions
  1. Mix 1 Tbsp of ground flax seeds with 2 Tbsp of water and then set aside. Sometimes ground flax seeds are hard to find at the grocery story, so you can always ground 2 tsp of whole flax seeds in a coffee grinder to equal 1 Tbsp ground! The flax seed and water mixture will serve as a binder, much like an egg would.
  2. Drain and rinse your black soy beans and then mash with a potato masher or a fork until they are mostly squished up.
  3. Mince your red pepper and white onion and add to the smashed soy beans. Next add the bread crumbs, flax mixture, and salt and pepper. Mix everything together until combined.
  4. Next, form your mixture into 12 patties. I eyed up the appropriate size by looking at my dinner roll while I worked.
  5. Heat your skillet over medium-low heat with just enough olive oil to completely coat the bottom of the pan. Once heated add your patties. Cook about 5 minutes on each side or until browned and then remove from the pan.
  6. Before turning off your burner, toast your dinner rolls until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
  7. Now it's time to make your mayo, which I actually did while I was cooking the burger patties. In a dish combine vegan mayo, avocado, lime juice, chipotle powder, and salt. Mix together until well-combined and smooth.
  8. Next, prep your toppers, which I also did while I was cooking the patties. Slice cherry tomatoes into little tomato rounds, break your red onion apart into little rings, or roughly chop, and wash some red lettuce leaves.
  9. Lastly, assemble your Game Day Chipotle Vegan Sliders. Spread the mayo onto each side of the dinner roll, add the burger patty, top with veggies and the top of the bun. Use a toothpick to hold it all together.
