I love this Millet & Tahini combo! Millet is a healthy cereal grain that originates from Africa. It is a rich source of magnesium, which is an important mineral for reducing blood pressure and the risk of heart attack or stroke. Also one of the effects of eating millet is a reduced chance of type 2 diabetes. I like cooking with many different grains and not sticking to just one so I decided to use millet in this recipe. I recommend that you will try to experiment with this grain for it’s many health benefits. Millet can be cooked just like rice and about 1 cupĀ  yields 3 cups of cooked millet. Also in this recipe I used Tahini, which is is high in many minerals including magnesium, potassium and iron. Tahini has many more health benefits including preventing anemia, high in vitamin E, B1, B2, B3, B5.. It has 20% complete protein, which is higher protein source than most nuts.

Cooking note:

The mixture tends to become crumbly and fall apart when cooking. Press some in your fingers, it should stick together easily. If needed, add more Tahini to bind everything better.

Varying ideas:

You can also swap the millet with Quinoa, which is also healthy grainand has a similar texture.

  4. Heat up oil in a pan (I use nonstick for less oil) and cook the patties for 2-3 minutes on each side. Place on a plate lined with paper towel to absorb the oil and serve warm.
