Rainbow Millet Patty
Health Highlights


1/2 cup Millet, dry
1 can (15oz) Black beans, canned (rinsed and drained)
1 tbsp Ghee (divided, or extra virgin olive oil)
1/2 cup White onion (diced small)
1/2 cup chopped Red bell pepper (diced small)
1/4 cup grated Carrots
2 large Egg (beaten)
1/4 tsp Garlic powder
1 dash Cayenne pepper (opptional)
1/4 cup Parsley, fresh (finely chopped)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (finely grated - can use vegan parmesan)
1 dash Black pepper (to taste)


Cook millet according to package instructions. Set aside to cool.

Add black beans to a medium bowl and roughly mash with a fork.

Heat 1 teaspoon of ghee in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Cook onion and pepper for approximately 5 minutes, or until the onion is translucent. Add the carrot and cook for 3 minutes more. Add to the bowl with the beans.

Add the millet, egg, garlic powder, cayenne, parsley and parmesan, stirring well to combine. Season to taste with pepper.

Form into six patties, roughly 1⁄2" thick. Heat 2 teaspoons of ghee in a large saute pan over medium- low heat. Cook for 4 minutes, flip gently and cook for 4 minutes more. You want a nice golden crust on the outside. Serve warm.


Keep an eye on the millet when cooking. If overcooked, it becomes very sticky and mushy.
