4 cups water
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 large onion diced
1/2 Tbs garlic powder
1/2 Tbs Italian seasoning
4 1/2 Cups old fashioned rolled oats.
Bring to a boil all ingredients except the oats. (I use a 3 quart pot, why do
Turn heat to low and stir in 4 1/2 cups rolled oats. Cook for about
5-10 minutes until the water is absorbed. Don't overcook. Not a
major warning here, but if it is too soupy, add some oats at about 5
minutes and cook for a few more minutes instead of cooking it longer.
I haven't had to add any oats the last 5 or 10 times I've made this).
Fill a rectangular non-stick baking pan with the mixture (we are
making square burgers here, a lot easier than forming little circles).
Your pan should be anywhere from 9x18 or larger. Depends upon how
thick you want them. I like them about 1/2 of an inch thick. I
wouln't make them any thinner, because they'll be tough and will dry
out . (Note: I wrote everything down but the pan size when I made
these the last time, and I usually fill one or two of whatever is
clean. You may need two pans. Sorry.)
Total cooking time is 45 minutes.
Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Then use a utensil that won't scratch
your pan to cut the giant burger into little burgers, and flip them.
Cook another 20 minutes. Taste great hot or cold.
Makes around 12 burgers.
