Millet is a staple food throughout much of Africa and Asia and it is very high in nutrients - the trick is knowing how to prepare it. Millet is the perfect grain for gluten free diets, and these patties are a delicious and healthy way to present it too.
1/2 cup millet
2 cups water
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons coconut oil
Rinse the millet and boil it in the water - using the absorption method. Allow the cooked millet to cool. It should look "fluffy" similar to cooked rice.
Millet Patty ingredients
Chop and fry the onion, zucchini and mushrooms.
