Come and get 'em! Veggie burgers packed with fiber-rich cereal are ready in less than 30 minutes.
cup Fiber One™ original bran cereal
can (15 or 16 oz) spicy chili beans in sauce, undrained
cup quick-cooking oats
cup chopped green onions (4 medium)
egg, slightly beaten
cups washed fresh baby spinach leaves
whole wheat burger buns, split
Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or crush in food processor).
In medium bowl, mash beans with fork until no whole beans remain. Add crushed cereal, oats, onions and egg; mix well. Shape mixture into 5 patties, each about 3 1/2 inches in diameter.
Spray 12-inch skillet with cooking spray. Add patties; cook over medium heat about 10 minutes, turning once, until brown.
For each sandwich, place 1/4 cup spinach leaves and 1 tomato slice on bottom half of bun; top with bean burger and top half of bun.
Legumes are loaded with plenty of fiber--the soluble kind. Start slowly so you have time to get used to added fiber in the diet!
