Oatmeal Walnut Burgers

Oatmeal Walnut Burgers

Makes about 10 vegi-burgers
2-1/2 cups rolled oats
2 cups walnut pieces
1/2 cup soy flour
3 eggs
2 medium onions, chopped
1 small can (5.5 oz. or 156 ml) tomato paste
1/4 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon marjoram spice
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Put everything, except the walnuts and onions, into a food processor and mix thoroughly. Next, add the onions and walnuts, and blend just long enough to mix them in. Then add enough extra water to make a suitable burger consistency. Take 1/2 cup at a time, and form the mixture into burger patties. Grill the patties on a BBQ, or fry them in a lightly oiled pan. Serve with beans, salad, sliced cheese, and whole grain bread.


Replace the onions with chopped peppers or mushrooms.
Replace the marjoram with 1 teaspoon sage.
Replace the tomato paste with 1/2 cup milk.
