Mini Satan Sliders
Burgers, especially those of the vegetarian variety, don’t normally cut it.
Sure, you can cough up $10 for a box of frozen Lick’s burgers and call it a day. Or maybe you go the ‘pub’ route and get a blend of veggies that are shaped like burgers, but don’t come close to satisfying your taste buds.
Insert Black Bean & Chipotle Seitan Sliders. Or what I like to call, Mini Satan Sliders.
These tiny little devils are packed full of flavour and are actually ridiculously easy to make. The recipe actually came to me in a dream where I turned evil, killed all of man kind, destroyed the earth, yada yada yada, then went for a delicious veggie burger. Of course, with mankind being extinct, Utopia wasn’t open so I had to fend for myself. These sliders were the result.
Try them out the next time you’re going to a BBQ. I guarantee that even those carnivorous pals of yours will agree these burgers are a tasty, tasty time.
1 cup Corn
1 can black beans
1 can tomato paste
1 t - Paprika
1/4 t - Chipotle
1/2 t - oregano, parsley, basil, garlic
Few squirts, liquid smoke
1 can, choptle w adobo sauce - Blend, use 1T
6-7 jalapeno rings, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup Gluten Flour
1/2 cup Bread crumbs
1/2-3/4 cup - broth.
1/4 braggs/soya sauce
1/2 T olive oil
Mix together everything from PART 1.
In a separate bowl, mix everything from PART 2 then add to PART 1. Do not stir.
Add PART 3 and stir everything together. You should end up with a texture similar to uncooked burgers. Knead a few times and set aside.
Heat Vegetable Oil in a frying pan and carefully form a patty with a spoon full of mix. You can make them about 1/2 an inch thick, or less.
Fry for 5 minutes on each side. Once done, pat off excess oil and place on a baking sheet in the oven for 20 minutes at 250•.
Now, if you want to remove the frying method, you can easily cook them up with less/no oil, or bake them the whole time. If you do decide on the all-oven method, I suggest 450• for about 30 minutes, give or take. Just keep an eye on them.
Okay. Enough small talk. Your sliders are done. Let’s add some toppings.
I used lettuce, tomato (for my friends, I would NEVER), some gouda, slices of apple (HOLY CHRIST was this a great addition), onions and salsa-ranch. Dress it like a burger. You should know by now.
And might I just say… these are pretty damn good burgers. Although i may keep experimenting and come up with some other cool variations. I noticed that the corn had a difficult time staying in the sliders so perhaps a heavenly corn-relish is in my near future? Or maybe a Buddah Slider?
My jokes are so bad today.
Til next time,
