Pumpkin and millet burgers


The quantities below made 14 patties.


800g piece pumpkin (we used the 2 small pumpkins from the harvest just before Halloween)
olive oil, sea salt & black pepper

2 cups cooked millet, cooled
1 large egg
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup porridge oats
2 tablespoons cornflour
2 good big handfuls of parsley, chopped


Essentially you oven-roast the pumpkin, mix everything together, and shallow fry the burgers. 

There are far more detailed instructions on the original recipe as well as excellent instructions for cooking millet here.

We ate ours with chilli jam and broccoli, which was very tasty. We felt that the burgers had a nice, mild, nutty flavour, but would easily stand a bit of spice, such as paprika/red pepper.

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