The oats in a kitchen machine flow to the coarse ground. Add the cabbage, 1 teaspoon of chopped garlic and 1/4 cup of the chopped onion, and pulse to finely chopped and the texture is crumbly. Add the egg, 2 tablespoons of parmesan, milk, 3/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoonful of pepper, and pulse until just combined.
