Get all the benefits of whole grains without any gluten! Antioxidant rich millet and “complete protein” quinoa make a dynamic duo in this tasty wholesome dish.
Spicy Yogurt Sauce:
-1 cup yogurt of choice
-1-2 tsp cayenne-1-2 tsp paprika
-1-2 tsp hot sauce of choice
-½ cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
-½ cup millet, rinsed and drained
-4 cups water + 4 Tbs
-2 Tbs ground flax seeds
-Salt and pepper, to taste
-1 tsp garlic powder
-1 tsp paprika
-¼ cup chickpea flour or any gluten-free flour + more if needed
-1 carrot, grated
-1 cup finely chopped kale
-¼ cup finely chopped onion
-1/3 cup quick oats
-¼ chopped parsley
-2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
1. In a small bowl, whisk Spicy Yogurt Sauce ingredients well. Cover and let chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.
2. In a large pot over medium heat, toast quinoa and millet for 2 minutes.
3. Add 4 cups water to pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and let simmer for 30-40 minutes. Mixture should be on the drier side. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and let cool completely.
4. Whisk together 4 Tbs water with ground flax seed in a small bowl until a runny consistency is achieved. Set aside.
5. Combine cooked grains, seasonings, flour, and vegetables in a food processor. Process until well combined. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
6. Stir in oats and flax mixture. Patty mixture should be sticky. Form mixture into about a dozen 1” thick patties. If mixture is too moist, add a few Tbs of flour. If mixture is too dry, add a few Tbs of olive oil. Prepare all patties before cooking.
7. Coat a large non-stick skillet with olive oil over medium heat. Cook patties in batches to prevent over-crowding. Fry patties for 5-7 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
8. Once patties are cool, top with a dollop of Spicy Yogurt Sauce and chopped parsley. You can also keep cooked patties in the refrigerator for a few days.
