  • 2 cups grated carrot
  • 2 cups onions chopped
  • 1 cup tomato chopped
  • 1 cup  oats add more according to the mixture
  • Your choice of ingredients to taste oregano, basil, salt, pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • A drizzle of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce optional


  1. Mix all of these together. Get your hands dirty, that's alright! Cause this is definitely worth it.
  2. 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.
  3. Place these patties in the oven for about 30-45 mins at 150 degrees (Celcius). Until you see both the sides turn brown.
  4. 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 mayo, a dip actually…

All you need is some greek yogurt, 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

  1. I’ve made a wide variety of vegetarian and vegan ‘burger-style’ rissoles but have never included oats. You’ve intrigued me now… off to have a play in my kitchen.

  2. I’m interested in prep then cook later? Or cook and recook later… tried that yet?

    1. I haven’t tried that yet, Gary. Maybe make the patties and keep in fridge for 2 days max with a cling film on top to keep the freshness.

  3. Did you happen to use quick cook oats or, perhaps, blend them a bit before you mixed them with the other ingredients. I make your oat burger recipe tonight and, while they were actually delicious, they were very crumbly and the whole, uncooked oats didn’t seem to want to bind together. I’m trying to decide how to solve for that because I would like to make them again!

I'd love to know your thoughts!
