How to make it
In a food processor or powerful blender, add all the ingredients and blend very well.
Remove from blender/food processor and form into 4 even-sized patties.
Coat a grill pan with oil on medium heat. Once hot, add the patties and cook 3-5 minutes, until golden brown/slightly charred before flipping and repeating until fully cooked. Remove from pan and wrap in aluminum foil and allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving.
