Millet Patties

Millet Patties

What You'll Need:

10 fluid oz water, lightly salted
5 oz millet
4 tbsp sunflower oil
1 bunch green onions, sliced
3 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp low-fat cream cheese
Salt and black pepper


In a big pot, bring water to a boil. Then pour in the millet and bring the water back to a boil and cover the pot. Simmer for about 25 minutes or until all water has been absorbed. Place the cooked millet into a bowl.

Heat half of the sunflower oil in a small frying pan and sauté the green onions for about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the onions to the millet and mix. Then add the chopped cilantro and combine.

In a small bowl, beat the egg and the cream cheese together and stir into the millet mixture. Season with salt and pepper, then form 8 round patties.

Heat the rest of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the patties until nice and golden on both sides. Drain on kitchen paper and serve with a tossed salad.
