Cooked carrots, summer squash and courgette are stirred into oats, cheese and egg with some stock and soy sauce added for colour and taste - a great alternative to beef burgers. Chill for at least 1 hour, then shape into thick burgers and pan fry, grill or barbecue.

Something else. Good recipe - I added 4 tbsp more oats and, since I was in a hurry, put the mixture in the freezer for about 20 minutes instead of the fridge. Had no problem with excess moisture or crumbling or falling apart. I mixed everything in my food proccessor. I placed my hands in the flour first before handling the mixture to make patties - really helped, no stickiness. The burgers tasted bland to me, even though I used a lot of garlic and seasoning. But I love spicy food, so it's no wonder to me that they tasted bland. Think I'll try mixing in some ketchup or a little hp sauce next time to give them more flavour. I like these! Will definitely make them again. - 24 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. I'm impressed. Pretty good. This is the only veggie burger I haven't binned. Added a little mushroom and crushed chillies. Also, a few drops of sesame oil-nice flavour. Pressed in breadcrumbs-not flour. This is the only veggie burger recipe I will ever use. - 24 Jul 2008
This was my second time trying to make veggie burgers (my first attempt - different recipe - failed miserably). Fortunately these turned out wonderful. I think next time I will add some chopped mushrooms to give them that added flavour! They held up very well. - 24 Jul 2008
