Nutritional values

A real superfood and domestic remedy are oats. The fiber beta-glucan from the grain can lower both blood sugar and insulin levels, protecting against diabetes. The antioxidant beta-carotene from carrots protects our cells from damage by free radicals and also serves as a vitamin A precursor. The fat-soluble vitamin is essential for healthy eyes.

If you want to vary things a bit, you can also refine the carrot mash with a few parsnips or parsley roots or make the mash entirely from parsnips. You can replace the pecan kernels with walnuts if you like.

Preparation steps


Pour double the amount of boiling water on oatmeal and let it swell for 5 minutes.


Meanwhile, clean the leeks, wash and cut into fine rings. Crumble the feta. Wash parsley, shake dry and chop finely. Then mix swollen oat flakes with feta, half of the parsley, leek, egg, flour, salt, pepper, marjoram and paprika powder to a malleable mass; if it is too soft, add some more flour. Shape the mixture into 12 patties with wet hands.


Clean, peel and slice the carrots. Peel and chop the garlic. Cook carrots and garlic in boiling salted water for 10-15 minutes over medium heat until soft.


Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan. Fry 6 patties in it on both sides for 3-4 minutes each until golden brown. Keep warm in preheated oven at 80 °C / 175 °F. Prepare the remaining 6 patties in the same way.


Along the way for the gremolata chop dried tomatoes. Coarsely chop the nuts. Mix both with remaining parsley, remaining oil, lemon zest and juice and season with salt and pepper.


Drain carrots, mash with a potato masher and season with salt, pepper and cinnamon. Arrange the oatmeal on the carrot mash and garnish with gremolata.
