Bean Burgers and a New Beano

What do you get when you mix these ingredients?

A wonderful bean burger!

What else?

Lots of gas!

But if you take one of these wonderful pills BEFORE you eat that fiber-filled bean burger, you won't get gas! Yep, your eyes aren't fooling you, Gas-X now makes their own version of Beano. Beano costs about two dollars more, so I suggest checking this out. With the Gas-X version you only need to take one pill and you're good to go (take it from me, they work just as well as Beano). Be sure to take the pill before your first bite of problem food.

Gina's Bean Burger Recipe
(Makes ~7 burgers)

1 can black beans (partially drained, keep about 1/4 cup worth of liquid)

1 cup Fiber One cereal

1 cup raw spinach

1 beaten egg (or 1/4 cup egg beaters)

4 T ground flaxseed

~1 T Red Hot

Garlic, as much or little as you want **I omitted this from mine because I can't eat garlic, boo**

1) Grind the Fiber One into a powder with your food processor or Magic Bullet

2) Smash the "almost fulled drained" beans in a medium sized bowl.

3) In a large bowl, combine the Fiber One, the beans, and the rest of the ingredients and blend well with a clean set of hands.

4) Make into patties and heat in a greased pan for about 3 minutes on each side!

Nutritional Highlights

QUESTION: Do you like beans? Which beans are your favorite?! I love baked beans, although they are typically loaded with sugar. I also love black beans, obviously. And kidney beans are great in chili!


  1. YUM i love black beans! how many burgers does this recipe make for the nutritional stats?

  2. I need to check out that GasX prevention-- my stomach does NOT like me for all of the fiber and veggies that I feed it!

  3. These suckers look terrific. My favorite bean? Good ole black or garbanzo...it's a tie.

  4. Interesting use of FiberOne cereal. I love bean burgers. Made me smile when the photos were followed by a Beano discussion. Needed combo.

  5. I love bean burgers! Favorite bean is the chickpea of course. Beans can be tough on my tummy, unfortunately. Does GasX beano have gelatin?

  6. Wow, beans and fiberone in one burger?! SO much awesome fiber!! You know how psyched I get about REAL fiber... :-)(aka not random inulin in my yogurt or jam, right? :-) This recipe is BRILLIANT!!!

  7. P.S. chickpeas are my favorite - pure childhood Mediterranean/Middle Eastern cuisine nostalgia... :-)

  8. I like adding both kidney beans and black beans to chili! Black beans are definitely my favorite. This reminds me I haven't made black bean burgers in probably two months now! Better get going on that :)

  9. oh these sound great! i bet they would be fab in a salad with goat cheeeeese haha although what's not good in a salad with goat cheese...

    i tried the gas x a while ago and didn't like it as much as beano! i feel like it didn't work as good. maybe it was just me hahah

  10. I love Franks!!!! We use ONLY franks on our hotwings...I literally start crying sometimes when I eat them :)

  11. Mmmm! The burgers look great. I love beans...chickpeas are probably my favourite of the bunch, though. I'll have to buy some of that Gas-X. I swear one of these days I'm gonna get kicked out of my Pilates studio! LOL I kid...maybe...

  12. I love bean burgers. Yours sound great! Love that you added spinach!

  13. I love love love beans. My favorite are black beans, but I also like most other kinds of beans (I can't think of one I don't like) and I also love hummus and bean dips. I don't find beano and gas-x work all that well for me but if I eat beans in very small portions I am usually okay without them. That's why I eat beans on my pizza and random things like that haha. I might be able to handle these burgers I'll have to give them a try :)

  14. I love all kinds of beans- red, white, black, pinto- you name it but I've never made a bean burger before. Yours looks delicious!

  15. Hi Gina,its been long since I visited your blog. Catching up on all your posts! Your burgers look delicious. I love black beans and navy beans!

  16. I'm impressed with this recipe! So creative! I do like beans, but I'm not sure I have a favorite.

  17. i still have my little Beano bottle nearby whenever gas and painful bloating strikes. thankfully i never get it with beans..but mostly brussel sprouts and cauliflower if i do. but yup, one before and possibly one after helps!

    the burgers look great!!! <3

  18. I love beans and am always looking for a new bean burger recipe, thanks!

  19. I LOVE beans!! black and pinto beans are my favorites though!

  20. Do they really work though? I mean, really?

    I guess I get caught up in the fact that if it causes that much discomfort, you should figure out a cure not a treatment (pill).

    However, an immediate fix would be nice!

  21. Looks tasty! I actually like black beans best because they seem to not give me as bad gas as the other beans :)

  22. There is nothing better than a black bean burger. I love that you use the same type grilling pan I have. I think a grilling pan really makes the difference in flavor. You get those great grill marks we love on a burger. Love all that fiber too! Good thing we can buy gas prevention in a pill. :)
