Kidney Bean and Pumpkin Seed Sliders [Vegan]



Cooking Time




  • 1 13.5-ounce can of kidney beans
  • 1 10-ounce block extra firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon white miso paste
  • 1/4 cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 small carrots, grated
  • 5 tablespoons tomato purée
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried basil
  • 1/2 bunch of fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until mostly blended but still slightly chunky.
  3. Form the mixture into small patties and place on a large baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30-40 minutes, turning them over once halfway through baking time. The patties are quite soft in texture, so do the flipping carefully.
  4. Serve on small buns with fresh vegetables and condiments of your choice.
