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.
1 cup millet
2 1/2 cups water
2 flax eggs ( 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal and 6 tablespoons water, let soak for 10 minutes)
1 tomato, grated
1 red bell pepper, thinly chopped
4 spring onions, thinly sliced
4 fresh basil leaves, thinly chopped
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
1 lemon, zest and juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
Olive oil spray
Heat oven to 375°F
In a pot add millet, water and salt. Cook until all the water have evaporated. Let it cool completely.
Take a mixing bowl and add all the rest of the ingredients including the millet. Mix well.
Take a baking sheet and line with a parchment paper. Take a small ice cream scoop and create an evenly sized patties. Spray the top with olive oil and bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
