Quick Stats:- 

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes 
  • Cooking Time: 30 minutes 
  • Servings: 6 serves 


  • 1 ½ cup cooked black-eyed peas, drained 
  • 2 small onions, finely chopped 
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup organic barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce, or tamari
  • 1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon thyme
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika

  • Juice of 1 large lime
  • ¼ cup coriander leaves, chopped
  • 8 slider-sized burger bun

Method to Prepare:-  

  • Put all ingredients except the bread crumbs in the food processor. 
  • Pulse a few times, just enough to break up the peas a little but not puree them. 
  • Stir in 1 cup of bread crumbs. Check the consistency. 
  • It should be moist but not wet. Add more bread crumbs to achieve the right consistency.
  • Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. 
  • Form burger patties on the prepared surface using about 1/2 cup of mixture per burger. 
  • Bake for 25-35 minutes. Burgers will be hot throughout, but don’t let them get too dry. 
  • Allow cooling for a few minutes on the baking sheet before serving.
  • For pico de gallo, combine tomato, remaining onion and jalapeño, coriander, and lime juice in a bowl. 
  • Place each patty on a bun and top with 1 tbsp pico de gallo and serve.
  • Enjoy these healthy and savory sliders! 

Final Words:-

The pico de gallo, a salsa, adds wonderful texture to these burgers. If meat is okay, cook a finely diced rasher of bacon with the garlic and jalapeño for smokiness. Try these amazingly delicious sliders and enjoy them on your weekend dinners.
