¼ cup coarsely ground almonds

½ cup chopped mushroom
½ tsp basil (I use fresh)
½ tsp oregano
2 tbs olive oil
sea salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:
Bring ½ cup water to a boil, add ¼ cup of the oats, dash sea salt – return to boil, reduce heat to low, cook 7 minutes

Directions:
In a big bowl add minced vegetables, ground nuts, seeds, cooked oats, dry oats, herbs, sea salt and pepper
Mix well
Form into patties
Heat oil over medium heat and cook patties until golden brown on each side – 5 minutes on one side (do not flip before 5 minutes), 3-4 minutes on the other side
You can add a bun, lettuce, slice avocado, tomato, cheese…you decide!
