Veggie Lover’s Patties

Ok, so I admit it: I am partly a “dump cook.” That is, I enjoy following recipes, but who doesn’t like improvising – and if the occasion calls for it, just putting ingredients together until it feels right?

With that said, I will do my best to give directions for this recipe. 🙄


In large saucepan boil 3-4 cups of water, 1 med chopped carrot, 3 chopped celery sticks and 1/4 onion, and seasonings (onion powder, garlic powder, salt) for 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender. (You can adjust the seasonings to your taste – it should be a little salty.

Turn off heat and stir in quick oats until thickened (similar to the texture of thick breakfast oatmeal). Remove from heat and let set for 5 minutes until stiff.

Preheat oven to 425°F. On a well greased pan/cookie sheet place heaping spoonful (approximately 3-4 tbsp) of mixture. Mash into shape (I like mine nicely rounded) about 1/4″ thick. Bake for 30 minutes on bottom rack, flip and bake 10-15 minutes more.

I served the patties on buns with feta cheese, tomato and mayo, but they also work great with gravy or however you prefer.


Makes 6-9 patties
