Smoky Black Bean Patties With Pineapple Avocado Salsa [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan




For the Millet Black Bean Patties:

  • 1 cup cooked millet
  • 1 15oz can black beans (or 1.5 cups)
  • 1 carrot, shredded (about ½ cup)
  • ¼ cup shredded onion (about one quarter of a medium onion)
  • ½ cup frozen or fresh corn kernels
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp tamari
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • Oil for pan frying (I used Grapeseed Oil)

For the Spicy Chipotle Sauce:

  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • ¼ cup pineapple juice
  • ½ avocado
  • ¼ cup cashews (soaked for 1-2 hours if you don’t have a high speed blender)
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2-3 tbsp water or non dairy milk to thin

For the Pineapple Avocado Salsa:

  • 1½ avocado, diced
  • ¾ cup diced pineapple chunks
  • Juice of 1 lime


To Make the Spicy Chipotle Sauce:

  1. Combine all ingredients, except water, in a high speed blender and puree until smooth. Add water as necessary to thin to desired consistency.

To Make the Pineapple Avocado Salsa:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and toss to combine.

To Make the Millet Black Bean Patties:

  1. Place black beans in a large mixing bowl and smash with a potato masher or fork. Add all the other ingredients and mix well to combine.
  2. Take about ¼ cup of the mix and form it into a patty with your hands. Place on a plate and repeat with the remaining mixtures.
  3. Heat 1-2 tbsp of oil in a pan on the stove over medium-high heat. Once hot, place 2-4 patties in the pan, spaced evenly (depending on pan size – do not over crowd the pan).
  4. Cook 4-5 minutes each side until crispy on the outside and heated through. Adjust heat as necessary while cooking….every stove is different. You want it hot enough to crisp up the outside, but not too hot that it burns before the patty is heated through.
