Ingredients
Millet Burgers
  • 1 cup millet
  • ½ tsp. sea salt plus a pinch for cooking millet
  • 1 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 1 large carrot peeled and grated
  • 4 scallions thinly sliced
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 ½ tsp. freshly grated lemon zest
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 6 large romaine or Bibb lettuce leaves
  • Mango Salsa for serving (see below)
  • Large drizzle Cumin Cashew Cream Sauce for serving (see below)
Instructions
  1. Cook the millet with a pinch of salt. Set aside to cool.
  2. Combine the flaxseeds and water in a small bowl; set aside for 10 minutes until the mixture forms a gel, then mix well.

  3. While the millet is cooking, combine the carrots, scallions, basil, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Once the millet is cool, add it to the bowl with the flaxseed mixture and mix well.

  4. Using your hands, shape the mixture into six burgers. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Place the burgers in the pan and cook until golden brown, 7 to 8 minutes on each side.

  5. Serve warm wrapped in lettuce leaves with a dollop of Mango Salsa and a drizzle of Cumin Cashew Cream Sauce on top. Uncooked burgers will keep for up to 4 days in the refrigerator or 1 month in the freezer, stored between pieces of parchment paper in a sealed container.
