- Combine the oats, water, and Bragg’s and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well.
- Form patties on a sprayed/oiled cookie sheet.
- Bake for 10 to 20 minutes at 375 degrees, then flip and bake for 10 – 15 more minutes. (Time may vary according to thickness and your oven.) Enjoy!
Efficiency Tip: Instead of grinding nuts and chopping the onion, place water and all ingredients (except oats and bulgur wheat) in a blender. Cover and turn on for 2 or 3 seconds, just long enough for all to go through the blades and get chopped fine, but not pureed. Then proceed as in Step 1.
Variation #1: Try adding 1 tablespoon each of molasses and tomato puree for a richer flavor.
Variation #2: Make a chili burger by replacing the sage with 1 teaspoon cumin and 1 tablespoon chili powder, or 1⁄2 package of mild taco seasoning.
Note: Be sure to get plenty of flavor in your burger! Remember, it is usually eaten in a bun with burger fixings, and if the burger is bland, you will hardly know it’s there.
