The flavor of black beans paired with the cool, crisp Mexican coleslaw makes for an excellent combination of flavors. You can eat these tasty patties on a bun, with some tortilla chips, or on a bed of the slaw.

Jalapeño Black Bean Patties With Mexican Coleslaw [Vegan, Gluten-Free]



Cook Time



For the Patties:

  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 jalapeño, de-seeded, rough chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free oats, pulsed into flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of cumin, coriander, and oregano
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt (or to taste)

For the Slaw:

  • 3 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 red pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 2 ears corn, charred on grill
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 2-3 tablespoons chipotle adobo sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin and chili powder
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste


To Make the Patties:

  1. Place jalapeño, red onion, and garlic in a small skillet with 1 tablespoon oil. Cook until the onion begins to turn translucent (about 5 minutes) just to take the edge off of the flavors.
  2. Dump all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until mostly smooth. Having some whole beans is totally fine!
  3. Place mixture into a bowl and let set in fridge for about 15 minutes (can prep slaw during this time)
  4. After mixture has set, divide into 4 patties and place on a lightly greased skillet to sear each side.

To Make the Slaw:

  1. Make the dressing: mix the mayo, chipotle adobo sauce, spices, lime, and salt and pepper in a bowl. You can add a tablespoon of water if you want to dilute. Mix well and set aside
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, carrots, red pepper, onion, corn, pumpkin seeds, and cilantro.
  3. Top with dressing and mix well! Adjust seasoning as needed.
