Millet, carrot & broccoli burgers

A really savoury veggie burger which is easy to whip up for a weeknight dinner.

Serves 2-3, depending on how hungry you are and whether you want leftovers for tomorrow's lunch :)

Ingredients

FOR THE BURGERS:
1 cup cooked millet (from about ⅓ cup dry millet)
sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup broccoli, grated
1 cup carrot, grated
1 small onion, peeled & chopped
½ teaspoon ground turmeric
½ teaspoon lemon zest
pinch of cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons ground seeds (could be one kind you like or a mixed bag)
1 egg
1 teaspoon grainy mustard

FOR THE SAUCE:
2 tablespoons raw cashew butter
2 tablespoons water, plus extra to thin
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon grainy mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 small clove of garlic
sea salt

Directions

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200C. Line and grease a baking tray.
  2. Put all the ingredients for the burgers into a food processor, and blitz until mixed.
  3. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  4. Shape into burgers by hand, and put on the baking tray.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes, turning them over half way through.
  6. While the burgers are in the oven, make the sauce: put all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until mixed. Use water to thin the sauce to your desired consistency. Adjust the seasoning to taste.
These burgers are great served with veg or salad. They can also go in wraps, like falafel, or even burger buns! If you have any left over, they're great both cold and reheated for lunch the next day.

This recipe tastes even better made with vegetables from Community Harvest Whetstone :)
