1/2 cup shredded carrots

1/2 cup shredded sweet potato

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup nutritional yeast

1 medium onion, chopped

1-1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon cumin

1-1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1-1/2 teaspoon parsley

DIRECTIONS

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix until smooth. Let sit for a couple hours or overnight to chill. Prepare grill or preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Portion patties using a 1/2 cup measuring cup. Cook for 20-25 minutes until golden-brown and heated through. Let sit for about 20 minutes after cooking to finish firming.
