Using rolled oats for binding makes these burgers hearty yet moist. We used Swiss cheese during testing, but any kind of cheese will work. Delicious with marinated, roasted red pepper slices on a lettuce bed or focaccia.
(Prep time includes chilling for 1 hour.)
- Over medium heat, sauté red onion and garlic in olive oil until opaque, about 5 minutes. Mix in mushrooms, zucchini, and carrots; sauté for another 3 minutes or so, until vegetables are tender but not mushy. Remove from heat and mix in oats, cheese, egg, red pepper flakes, basil, nutritional yeast, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in broth, and then mix in ¾ cup wheat germ or bread crumbs. Refrigerate for about 1 hour.
- Brush grill or frying pan with oil and preheat. Place ¼–½ cup wheat germ or bread crumbs on a plate. Form veggie mixture into four patties. Dredge in wheat germ or crumbs; grill for about 5 minutes per side.
