Mix burger ingredients well in a large bowl. Shape into 4-5 burgers and refrigerate for half an hour or so to give them a chance to firm up slightly. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Bake burgers for 20 minutes on baking paper on a baking tray. For a lighter meal serve “bunless” with a large green salad.
