Bring a medium pot of water to boil. First put in the kale, after two minutes add the frozen peas and cook for seven minutes. Two minutes before time is up add the broccoli florets. Drain and set aside to cool off a bit before you transfer it to a food processor.
In the meantime, heat some olive oil in a small pan and sauté the onion for 2-3 minutes.
Then add the minced garlic and cook for another minute.
Place the cooked vegetables together with the chopped celery into a food processor and process for a couple of seconds. Make sure to leave some texture. Place in a medium bowl and stir in the oats, bread crumbs, walnuts, and sautéed onion and garlic. Season with the Italian seasoning, coconut aminos, mustard, salt, and black pepper.
