Add 1 cup of oats when frying mince they soak up the juice and they feel and taste like mince they bulkup a meal and they’re full of fibre.
Use Scotch/pinhead steelcut oats and not rolled oats for better texture but we chuck in any oats.
The ratio of meat to oats should be no more than 1:1 however it’s best to start with a lot less oats (around 20%) to see if you notice first.
This was a common trick during the 2nd World War and is still ideal.
The oats will take on the taste and texture of the meat and you’ll be hard pressed to even notice the oats! You can effectively double the size of your ‘meat’ this way.
