Do you just have that feeling when it’s a Thursday night and you want to settle in with a movie and a nice meal? But worried about how you don’t want to choose something that has a high fat content?
This happens to me usually, and since my lifestyle is basically eating out, I try to avoid ordering as much as possible. This helps me hone my cooking skills and fills my tummy!
Therefore, presenting to you a burger that’s not only guilt-free, but easy to make! And yes, this one has oats too. God! Don’t you just love that grain for being so useful when you are in dire need to prepare something yummy?
Mentioned below is the recipe that will take you into the kitchen in no time! I decided to make these vegetarian as that’s what I loved best. But you can alter the recipe.
Baked Oats Burgers
- 1 Grated Carrot
- 2 Small Onions, chopped
- 1 Big Tomato, chopped
- 1 cup Oats (change consistency according to mixture)
- Your choice of ingredients to taste (oregano, basil, salt, pepper)
- 2 cloves of Garlic, minced
- 1 packet Tomato Paste or about 3 tablespoons
- A drizzle of Olive Oil
- Worcestershire sauce (optional)
Mix all of these together. Get your hands dirty, that’s alright! Cause this is definitely worth it.
Make patties of your preferred size. The oats hold them together, so if you feel that your mixture is a little runny, feel free to add in more.
Place these patties in the oven for about 30-45 mins at 150 degrees (Celcius). Till you see both the sides turn brown.
Place in a bun with your favorite ingredients and enjoy!
The best part about this recipe is that you can add in whatever you like and it’s still going to taste great! We’ve already tried this about 4-5 times adding in different ingredients each time. Shredded chicken, minced meat, cauliflower, and capsicum make delicious patties too.
I also developed a mayo to go with it. Except, it isn’t much of a mayo, a dip actually…
All you need is some greek yoghurt, crushed basil leaves and salt to taste. This makes for a tasty spread on your bread before you put your patty in.
How do you like your burgers? Meat or the veggie way? 😀
Until then, happy eating! xx
