Serve with 1 cup sliced veggies, your choice.
1 1⁄2 cups water
3 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp coconut or olive oil
2 cans (14 oz/398 ml each) unsalted black beans
4 medium-sized panini buns or chopped baguette
1⁄2 cup grated cheese, your choice
Toppings (optional): sliced green onions
- In 4-Cup Prep Bowl, whisk seasoning with water and tomato paste. Microwave, uncovered, on high, 2 min or until thickened.
- Using 2-in-1 Citrus Press, squeeze in juice from lime; whisk in oil. Set aside.
- Drain and rinse beans. Place in Multipurpose Steamer; add 1⁄2 cup sauce. Cover; microwave on high 2 min. Using a fork, coarsely mash.
- Slice buns open. Toast, if desired. Fill each bun with beans (it will be full!). Drizzle each sandwich with 2 tbsp reserved sauce. Add more, if desired. Alternatively, serve with remaining sauce on the side. Top with cheese and green onions, if desired.
Make mini sliders—simply swap panini buns with small hamburger buns.
Planning on bringing these on a picnic? We suggest assembling the sandwiches just before serving to avoid soggy buns and allow for easier transport.
