Millet Bite Size Patties

Millet is a wonderful and super nutritious grain that is mild in flavor and works perfectly in this recipe. 

Millet has high B-vitamin content, as well as calcium , iron, potassium, magenzuim, zinc and essential fats that our body needs. These patties are so flavorful and beautiful to serve as an appetizer. I drizzled mine with spinach ranch dipping sauce (recipe to follow) and it was awesome.

Enjoy!
