The co-op here in Rochester makes a mean oat pecan burger. It’s so good that I tracked down the recipe so I could make it myself! Aside from being able to make these whenever a craving strikes, I’m also saving money by making them at home. This is a hearty burger that both meat-eaters and vegetarians will love!
Oat Pecan Burgers (vegan, gluten-free)
Adapted from 3 Angels Fellowship
Makes approx. 7-8 burgers
- 2 cups water
- 1/4 cup Bragg’s (liquid aminos) or tamari
- 2 Tbs. + 2 tsp. canola oil
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1/8 cup nutritional yeast
- 1/2 Tbs. dry basil
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- 1/2 tsp. coriander
- 1/2 tsp. sage
- 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
- Place all ingredients into a large pot except the oats and bring to a slow boil.
- Stir in rolled oats and remove from heat.
- Let cool and shape into patties. Note: the cooling process takes about 30 minutes.
- Heat a small amount of oil in a pan. Once warm, fry the patties until lightly browned on each side.
Serve on a bun with your favorite fixins! I’m a fan of lettuce, organic ketchup and vegenaise (if you haven’t tried it, you are missing out!).
Sprouts, tomatoes, pickles and/or avocado slices would also be good options.
