1 large carrot, shredded
2 medium zucchini, shredded
1 small white onion, minced
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 cups baby spinach leaves
1 TB olive oil
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats*
1/4 cup ground flax
2 TB Bragg's Amino Acid or Soy Sauce
1 tsp (or to taste) hot sauce, I used Cholula Chipotle
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded cheese(your preference, cheddar, pepper jack, mozzarella, provolone.....)
*certified GF for those that need it
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add carrots, zucchini, onion, garlic and baby spinach.
Sauté until veggies are tender, about 5-7 minutes.
Remove from heat and pour into a colander, drain well, pressing slightly to remove a little more liquid.
Mix well, cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
After it is well chilled mix in the shredded cheese.
Form into patties(this makes 8-10 smaller ones or 6 nice big ones, I did 3 bigger ones and 4 smaller ones) then dust with a little rice flour(all purpose is fine for those not needing gluten free)
Refrigerate 15- 20 minutes more.
Place patties on a greased baking pan and broil for about 5-7 minutes on each side.(adjust times as needed for the size of your patties)
