What a great snack food. You'll love these, and they are a favourite with children too. Loads of fibre and protein. Do you like millet? Some call it birdseed.  Are you trying to eat less meat? The I highly recommend you need to try this recipe, a very tasty dish and a great lunchbox filler. This recipe is wheat and gluten free. No birdseed in this recipe, I promise you.

Do you like millet? Some call it birdseed.  Are you trying to eat less meat? The I highly recommend you need to try this recipe, a very tasty dish and a great lunchbox filler. I like to munch on these when I travel, they are a great snack on the road or with a picnic too. This recipe is wheat and gluten free. Makes 5- 6 patties.   Double the amounts by all means. Tasty and chock-o-block full of protein. They are nice served cold as well. And – no birdseed in this recipe, I promise you.

 Ingredients

  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Can of chickpeas , or even better 1 cup of freshly cooked chickpeas
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon chilli powder (or chilli to taste, or omit)
  • ½ teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt
  • ground pepper to taste
  • ½ cup of Ground Millet
  • 1 egg
  • Olive Oil

Method

  • Place all ingredients in a food processor and process into a coarse paste. If you don’t have a food processor, cut the onion as finely as you can, mash the chick peas and mix everything together as best you can.
  • Shape the patties and gently coat outside with extra Ground Millet.
  • Place in the fridge for ½ hour to firm up. Place patties in pan with a little olive oil and cook until golden brown.
  • Serve with yoghurt and diced cucumber dressing.
