1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 cup whole wheat flour

Salt to taste

Oat Carnitas

Best Blog Tips

(In this photo they are plated with a saucy softito of different peppers and onions)

1 cup old fashioned oats
3/4 cup quinoa
3/4 cup cracked wheat
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 Tablespoon parsley, chopped
1 medium tomato
1 small red onion
1 tsp. garlic powder (/1/2 tsp. if you are not a great garlic lover)
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1 stalk celery
1/2 cup walnuts
1 Tbsp. olive oil + more for cooking
Salt to taste
3 1/2 Tbsp. cornstarch

Soak the oats in 3/4 cup water until soft. Boil the cracked wheat till it is soft like rice. Do the same with the quinoa. But before this, rinse the quinoa several times to get rid ot the natural saponins that it contains (this will improve the flavor.) Once both grains are soft,
scoop them into a food processor or a blender and process them together with all the vegetables with a little bit of water, until you have a soft paste. Scrape into the bowl where the oats are, then add all the seasoning to this, blending well, until all is well incorporated.
Add the cornstarch, avoiding lumps. Form patties and either cook them in a skillet barely painted with olive oil until golden brown on both sides, or bake them at 350ยบ F, turning every so often until golden brown on both sides, or cook in a skillet barely painted with olive oil till golden brown.

(This how they look plain)

Here they are after they were dropped in a little bit of pasta sauce and allowed to absorbed the juicy goodness till they were moist and tender (about 5 minutes)
