•½ cup oats
•½ cup red quinoa
•1 cup vegetable broth or water
•1 ½ tsp olive oil
•½ tsp hing
•1 tsp salt
•½ tsp black pepper
•1 tsp Italian seasoning
•2 tbsp flaxseed meal, optional ( I prefer to add flaxseed meal in everything I eat)
•1 ½ cup cooked white beans or any beans, drained, and patted dry
•1/3 cup finely shredded cabbage
•3 tbsp finely chopped red bell pepper
•2 tbsp tomato sauce
•6 olives, sliced
•2 tbsp finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes, drained
•2-3 tbsp oil for oiling and grilling or pan frying patties
1.In a food processor or a blender, mix beans and oats for one minute.
2.Meanwhile, bring quinoa and broth or water to a boil in a saucepan. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for 13 minutes.
3.Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Stir in cooked quinoa, tomato sauce, bell pepper, cabbage, olives, and sun-dried tomatoes. Add salt and pepper, hing, Italian seasoning, flaxseed meal and olive oil. Mash to combine. Form 6 ½ cup-sized patties. Brush tops of each patty with oil.
4.You can grill the patties or pan fry them. If you grill them, it takes 6 minutes. If you pan fry the patters, it takes about 3-4 minutes for each side. Serve these patties with your favorite burger buns and toppings.
