Mixed Veggie Burgers

1/2 cup diced red onion

2 cloves garlic, crushed

2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 cup thinly sliced cremini mushrooms

1/2 cup shredded zucchini (about 1 small zucchini)

2/3 cup shredded carrots (about 2 medium carrots)

2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

2 tsp dried basil

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

-Over medium heat, saute red onion and garlic in olive oil until opaque, about 5 minutes. Mix in mushrooms, zuccini, and carrots; saute for another 3 minutes or so, until vegetables are tender but not mushy. Remove from heat and mix in oats, cheese, egg, red pepper flakes, basil, nutritional yeast, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in broth, and then mix in 3/4 cup wheat germ or bread crumbs. Refregerate for about 1 hour.
