2 cups walnuts
2 onions, roughly chopped
3 eggs
2 fresh chillies, finely chopped (optional)
¼ cup tamari or soy sauce

cooking instructions
Put oats, flour and walnuts in a food processor and pulse until walnuts are finely chopped. Add onions and continue to pulse until onions are chopped medium-fine. Then add eggs, chillies, chilli sauce, tamari and thyme and pulse until just blended. If mixture appears too dry, add either extra chilli sauce or water. Form burger patties using ½ cup walnut mixture per patty and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Fry on both sides in a small amount of hot oil in a fry pan or on a barbecue plate. Season with salt. If using cheese, place on patties just before serving, cover with lid and allow cheese to melt. Serve on bread rolls with condiments of your choice.
