Heat oil in a large skillet.

Allow to cool slightly.

Soak oats in water for 5 minutes, then drain and press out excess water.

Add to vegetable mixture along with potatoes, hazelnuts and rice.

Season with salt and pepper.

Form mixture into 8 patties.

Grill patties on a well-oiled vegetable grill, or sauté in olive oil for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until golden.

Serve as desired with or without a bun. They work quite well on their own along with home-made spicy tomato ketchup. See link for a recipe below.

These turned out great, so far they are the best vegetable burgers we've tried. My wife loved them, I think it's the herbs that really lifted them to the next level. Seemed a bit like a potato pancake but with lots of extra vegetables. The nuts and oats really helped to build up a decent texture.
