As an additional "ingredient" to this recipe post, we've partnered with Catherine to turn the power of good flavor into positive community impact - by contributing 5% of sales motivated by this post to a social justice non-profit organization of her choice.

I've decided to dedicate this post and partnership to United We Dream, the largest immigrant youth-led community in the country. Their mission is to create welcoming spaces for young people - regardless of immigration status - to support, engage, and empower them to make their voice heard and win.

  1. Set oven to 375F
  2. Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse 10-15 times to mix everything together
  3. Remove lid and scrape down sides
  4. Now process on low until mixture starts to form a moldable dough consistency
  5. Divide dough into 6 equal pieces and form them into inch thick patties
  6. Place patties on a lined baking tray and if desired, brush both sides with a little oil (if oil free just make sure you bake on parchment paper or a non stick surface)
  7. Place tray in oven and bake for 25 minutes
  8. With a spatula carefully flip patties and place back in the oven for another 10 minutes
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before handling. Enjoy between burger buns or as a protein patty with dinner bowl.
