After I was booked on Martha Stewart Living’s “Everyday Food” radio show for a conversation about veggie burgers (listen to it here!), I thought I should polish up my veggie burger repetoir. Fortunately, I recently read an inspiring recipe for Quinoa Veggie “Meatballs” on the Small Boston Kitchen blog that looked like it would translate well to a burger form.
I used her recipe as a blueprint and ended up with these Millet Veggie Burgers when I accidentally prepared millet to use in the recipe rather than quinoa (note to self: be sure to label grains before they go into a jar in the cupboard). The millet turned out to be a nice surprise, though and made me realize that many grains would likely work in a recipe like this one.
My family found these Millet Veggie Burgers to be delicious and quite filling. Here I served a lunch of three on a bed of Romaine lettuce with Annie’s Naturals Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette.
Let me know what you think!
