For nutrients and prebiotics, these Millet Croquettes are not only tasty, but they are also just what the doctor ordered.
Millet, though quite often referred to as a grain, is actually a seed. It does not contain gluten, making it a perfect choice for those with gluten sensitivities. It can be used as a breakfast food, in baking and on its own as a stand in for mashed potatoes or rice. Full of nutrients, this prebiotic food is easily digested and helps to keep your colon regular.
- 1 cup millet (or 1⁄2 millet and 1⁄2 amaranth)
- 2 cups of water
- 1⁄4 cup flour of your choice (corn, brown rice or quinoa)
- 1⁄2 cup toasted walnuts or sunflower seeds (ground to a powder)
- 1 carrot, shredded
- 2 scallions, minced or 1⁄4 cup chopped parsley
- 1 bunch of kale, washed and chopped
- 1⁄4 cup chopped dill
- 1 onion, diced
- Dash of turmeric
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon tamari
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Rinse and dry toast millet and amaranth for a few minutes; add 2 cups of water and cook for 30 minutes. To dry toast, place grains in a pan over low-medium heat until the water from rinsing has been absorbed.
2. Grind the toasted walnuts or sunflower seeds to a powder, or, alternatively, use whole for a crunch and nutty texture.
3. Sauté onions and a bit of olive oil over medium heat, once onions have softened, add kale, carrots, chopped dill, and scallions until wilted and cooked together.
4. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; add corn flour, salt, turmeric, sesame oil, and tamari.
5. Form into 2-inch logs on baking sheet with parchment paper and bake for 25–30 minutes.
