Recipe help - "Rolled oats"

Hi everyone - I am attempting to make veggie burgers from scratch using Mark Bittman's 101 Summer Recipes article from the NY Times a month or so ago.

He writes:
Drain and pour a 14-ounce can of beans into a food processor with an onion, half a cup rolled oats, a tablespoon chili powder or other spice mix, an egg, salt and pepper. Process until mushy, then shape into burgers, adding a little liquid or oats as necessary. Cook in oil about three minutes a side and serve.

Do I cook the oats before adding them, or do I add them dry (i.e., straight from the package)?

  1. I would add them dry. Bittman is pretty specific in his recipes, so I can't imagine he wouldn't say "cooked oats" if that's what he meant. The dry oats are meant to act as a sort of binder for the other ingredients.

    1. Straight from the package.

      1. Thanks - I followed your advice, and they turned out pretty good!
