Marie-Joanne Boucher’s Oat Burgers

45 MIN



  1. In a large bowl, combine the oatmeal, breadcrumbs, grated cheese, eggs, sesame and sunflower seeds, parsley, pepper, paprika, and vegetable flakes. Add the water and mix well until smooth. Leave to rest for 15 minutes.
  2. Shape into 8 patties. Careful, it is a bit sticky!
  3. Heat a little vegetable oil in a large heavy skillet and fry the patties until golden brown.
  4. Pour enough water to cover halfway up the patties, add the tamari and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, turning them a few times in the cooking juices.
  5. When the liquid is completely reduced, serve immediately.


  1. Very good! Didn't have parsley so substituted with other dry herbs (oregano and some other things). Tasted very good. The sunflower seeds are a a crunch. The water and soy is also interesting and a good suggestion to give the burgers some softness. Meat-lovers...this is a hearty burger! You'll love them! emoticon!

  2. JUST WOW! I just finished my burger and I'm already full! This recipe is so tasty and healthy!

  3. The recipe is for burgers but the instructions from point 2 onwards is for veg "meat" balls! Maybe there is a mistake here? Maybe Step 2 should state to "shape the mixture into burger patties". Step 3. Lightly oil a pan and place the burger in the pan and cook for 3 minutes on each side. Also - please don't use "meatball" when talking about vegetarian food! : )
