A big stack of Tahini Black Beans Fritters

Tahini Black Beans Fritters

Tahini Black Beans Fritters are scrumptious yet nutritious everyday snacks or breakfast. These fritters are versatile enough to be consumed as patties over your choice of salad. These fritters taste amazing as sandwiches. However, I enjoy these fritters as is with a vegan yogurt base dip.

  • griddle


  • 1 14oz can black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp crushed chili flakes
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • Salt as per taste


  • In a food processor combine black beans and tahini and pulse until well mashed and blended.
  • Spoon out the sticky batter in a large mixing bowl and fold in rest of the ingredients.
  • Now, take some water in a small bowl and keep it aside. Heat a nonstick pan and grease it well with a cooking spray.
  • Dip your fingers of both hands into water and take a small batch of it between the fingers of both the palms. Shape it roughly to round flat round shape and drop it on the warm pan.
  • Let it cook on one side and then gently flip it over to the other side with the help of two spatulas.
  • Let it cook until golden brown.
  • Repeat the same process as above for the rest of the batter.
  • Serve it with some salad.


  • Make sure to dip your hands in water for every fritter to avoid sticking in your hands. While dropping the fritters also wet they release better with wet hands.
  • These taste amazing with Tajiki sauce as well.
  • Use two spatulas to flip over or else the fritter might break. Once slightly cool the fritters will become firm. 
  • This recipe makes 12 fritters and serving size is 4 fritters per person.
  • These fritters are quite small in size unlike patties.
