Ingredients

  • 1 Small bunch broccoli (chopped into medium florets)
  • 1 Small onion (peeled and quartered)
  • 3 cloves garlic (peeled)
  • 1 cup cooked millet (see instructions in recipe note)
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup finely chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil (divided)

Note

To cook millet: Bring 1 cup of water to a boil.  Add ½ cup of millet, return to a boil, cover and reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes.  Remove from heat (keep covered) for 10 minutes, fluff with a fork. Feel free to snack on remaining millet with a little soy sauce!

Directions

1. In a food processor, combine broccoli florets, onion and garlic and pulse until pieces are roughly the size of rice grains.
2. Transfer broccoli mixture to a large bowl and add remainder of ingredients. Mix until combined and place in refrigerator for 10 minutes.
3. Remove from refrigerator and form into small patties (pack them tightly), about 2 Tbsp each. Mixture should make 15-18 patties.
4. Heat 1 Tbsp of canola oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Fry each patty for 4-5 minutes each side, until a golden crust forms and patty is cooked through. Fry the second batch with the remaining canola oil.
5. Serve along side a creamy lemony dip (¼ cup mayonnaise, ¼ cup greek yogurt, juice of ½ a lemon and s&p to taste)
