3 cups cooked or canned soybeans, rinsed and drained if canned
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup sunflower or other light oil

¼ tsp. ground cayenne

½ green bell pepper, finely chopped

2 ½ cups cooked millet

2 cups quick (not instant) rolled oats


  1. In food processor, combine soybeans, tamari, oil, cayenne and garlic. Process until smooth, then transfer to large mixing bowl.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients (except additional oil) in order listed, mixing well with each addition.
  3. In large skillet, heat thin layer of oil or cooking spray over medium-high heat. Scoop out about a peach-size amount of bean mixture and shape into a patty (wet hands as necessary so they don’t stick) and place each patty into hot oil.

OMG this saved my life!

Is this a joke?? The stuff doesn't stay together at all, impossible to make patties with

Kyle, the oats are full of gluten and should be plenty enough to make these form into patties. Either you are using quick oats or none at all. Also are you mixing by hand instead of using a food processor?

Mate, oats donot contain any gluten. They are not from the wheat grain family. That being said, this recipe is f***** AWSOME!!! tastes superb and is very easy to make. To top it all it is super healthy! Kyle, The reason your patty isnt sticking together is because you are using too much water in the food processor. Or you are using instant oats.

Terrible recipe. Oats...cooked or uncooked?

Can these be frozen and cooked at a later date?
