From

Gluten-, Soy-Free Vegan Falafel Burgers

Ingredients

  1. 1 3/4 cups cooked millet
  2. 1 can garbanzo beans
  3. 2 cups frozen spinach
  4. 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  5. 1 tablespoon ground flax
  6. 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning (or oregano)
  7. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  8. Salt/pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Cook the millet by mixing one cup millet plus two cups water in a pot. Allow it to come to a boil, then turn down the heat slightly until the water has been completely absorbed. Set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl, defrost the frozen spinach. Then pour the garbanzo beans into the bowl and mash — but not too much, there should still be some texture left in the garbanzo beans!
  2. Then, add the ground flax, nutritional yeast, and olive oil to the spinach/garbanzo bean mixture. Lastly, add the millet and seasonings. Mix well.
  3. Heat up a skillet on the stove. Form the mixture into balls, then place them on the skillet and flatten them slightly with a spatula. The patties will brown and crisp up a little. Serve with whole wheat pita pockets, buns, or bread with toppings of choice.
