oat-burgers recipe

Date:    Mon, 18 Apr 94 02:58:45 EDT
 From:    dp661@cleveland.freenet.edu (Dr. Neal Pinckney)
 4   c water
 1/2 c salt-reduced soy sauce or tamari
 1/2 c nutritional yeast
 1   large onion diced
 1/2 T garlic powder
 1   T  each Oregano and Basil, dried
 1   t  liquid smoke (optional)
 Mushrooms, fresh or canned (optional) 1/4 c to 1 c
 4.5 c old fashioned rolled oats
 Bring all ingredients except the oats to a boil.  Turn heat to
 low and stir in 4.5 cups rolled oats.  Cook for about 5 minutes
 until the water is absorbed.  Don't overcook. If it is too soupy,
 add some oats at about 5 minutes and cook for only a few more
 minutes until thickened. 
 Fill a rectangular non-stick baking pan with the mixture (makes
 square patties, easier than forming little circles). The pan could 
 be anywhere from 9 x 18 inches (22.5 X 45 cm.), 12 inches (30 cm.) 
 square or larger to make patties about a half-inch (1.3 cm.) thick.
 If too thin they'll be tough and will dry out.
 Total cooking time is 45 minutes. Bake at 350 F. for 25 minutes. 
 Then use a utensil that won't scratch your pan to cut the giant 
 burger into 3.5" to 4" (10 cm.) square burgers and flip them over.
 Cook another 20 minutes.  Serve in buns or as a main course, hot
 or cold.  Can be frozen.
