Directions

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375°. Lightly grease two baking sheets.

In a food processor, add 1 cup of the oats and process into a coarse flour. Place in a small bowl with the remaining ½ cup oats, and set aside.

In a food processor, process the onion, carrot, celery, and garlic until finely chopped. Place in a large sauté pan with the olive oil over medium heat and cook until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.

Process the mushrooms until finely chopped. Add to the sauté pan with the thyme and tomato paste and cook 5 minutes more. Process the white beans and soy sauce and add to the vegetable mixture. Cook 2 to 3 minutes more and taste for seasoning.

Transfer the vegetable and bean mixture to a large bowl. Add the quinoa, pecans, and oats and stir until well combined. Taste for seasoning.

Use a ½-cup measure to scoop the veggie burgers into individual patties on the baking sheets. Flatten the patties to about ¼-inch thickness and bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until browned and somewhat firm.

Allow the patties to cool for 5 minutes before serving on whole wheat buns with sliced avocado, cheddar cheese, lettuce, and tomato, if desired. You can also prepare the patties ahead of time and, once completely cooled, grill for 2 to 3 minutes on each side before serving.
