Millet Moo-Free Burger

Millet Moo-Free Burger


1/4 cup of millet
1 cup of water
1 carrot washed, peeled and grated
1 potato washed, peeled and grated
1 onion diced
2 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoon of wholemeal spelt flour
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of mustard seeds
1 tablespoon of ground chia seeds soaked 1/4 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon of ground coriander
1 stalk of fresh rosemary chopped
Salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350 F degrees (180 C degrees).

Bring millet and water to the boil in a pot, then simmer on low for approximately 30 minutes.

In a frying pan, heat oil, sprinkle in mustard seeds, add onion and garlic and saute for a few minutes.

Add carrots and potato to the pan and mix to soften.

Sprinkle in the cumin, coriander and rosemary.

In a large mixing bowl combine the millet and the ingredients from the frying pan along with the salt and pepper.

Mix in the chia seeds--this will be your egg replacer.

Add the flour and fold gently.

With your hand make large balls out of the mix, and then flatten to burger patties.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper and place the burger patties on it

Cook for 30 minutes turning the burgers half way through.

When burgers are starting to crisp on the outside, serve up and enjoy!
