Mexi-Veggie Bean Burger

This is an idea I came up with because I have been trying to eat more fiber and I wanted a really low point lunch.  I have been craving a big burger and this just sounded so good!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup black beans (I buy mine from Trader Joes)

1/2 cup kidney beans

1/3 cup quick oats (I just use generic)

1 cup diced onion

1 cup green peppers

1 cup fiber cereal (again, I use the kind from Trader Joe’s, but you can use Fiber One-It’s just a little pricey for me!)

1/4 cup egg beaters

2 tsp. low sodium soy sauce

1 tsp. red wine vinegar

1 tsp. worchester sauce

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

1 cup cut green beans

Directions:

Blend fiber cereal into “breadcrumbs.”  Set aside in a bowl. 

Add 1/3 cup boiling water to quick oats and set those aside also.

Both play a nice part in actually keeping the “burger” together.

 In a medium pot, sprayed with PAM or another type of non-stick cooking spray. , cook all of the veggies for about five minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally.

When the five minutes are up, carefully remove the pot from the heat and put all of the cooked veggies in a large bowl.  Stir in quick oatmeal, fiber “breadcrumbs”, soy sauce, salt, pepper and egg beaters.  Mix until well blended.

Next, flatten your “burger” mixture into patties.  These should be placed on a plate and be placed in the refrigerator to set and cool.  Cooling time: 30 minutes-1 hr. (Just enough time to clean up!)

Once cooled, spray a skillet or a griddle with PAM.  I cooked mine about 3 minutes per side (just until they started to look brown!) Make sure to flip them gently so they do not fall a part or lose their shape! I added sour cream to mine and a few jalapenos!
