Step 1: Make coleslaw

Mix mayonnaise, cilantro, basil, Parmesan, Hidden Cove Lemon Garlic Blend, lime juice, and garlic in a food processor and blend until creamy. Toss coleslaw mix with dressing until fully coated.

Step 2: Make patties

Combine water and oats. Microwave for 2 min., or until water is absorbed, allow to cool. Meanwhile, smash cannellini beans into a chunky paste. Combine remaining ingredients with beans and divide into four, 4-inch patties. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Cook patties in pan for 5 min. per side, or until golden brown.

Step 3: Assemble

Place patty on bun. Top with tomato and coleslaw.
