“Carnival” Cannellini Bean Sliders with Avocado Buns
1 can drained cannellini beans, mashed
1 bunch asparagus, thinly sliced
1 cup bread crumbs
2 eggs, cracked
½ cup parmesan cheese
¼ cup toasted sunflower seeds
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs toasted sesame oil
1 tbs sesame seeds
½ tsp cumin
Sea salt to taste
Dash of Aleppo pepper powder
Sriracha or Chipotle mayonnaise goes nicely as you assemble. If you so desire.
4 avocados - cut in half
1 cup thinly sliced purple cabbage, soaked in 1 tbs olive oil, 1 tbs lime juice & sea salt to taste
1 onion sliced thinly, caramelized in 1 tbs of butter and 1 tbs of extra virgin olive oil
In large mixing bowl combine mashed cannellini beans, sliced asparagus, bread crumbs, eggs, parmesan cheese, sunflower seeds - hand mix until well combined. Add in the remaining ingredients- save ½ of the sesame seeds to sprinkle on top . Make slider patties - place on baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 20- 25 minutes.
While baking - you can caramelize your onions, slice and soak your red cabbage - set both aside. Slice avocado in half and scoop out trying to maintain shape.
Remove sliders from oven and assemble. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top, drizzle a little tamari - so many delicious choices. ENJOY!
