Author Notes

Beetroots and millet are mixed into sharp red colored gluten free burgers and fried in a pan.
We serve them in an organic sourdough baguette and topped it with mashed avocado, tomatoes, cucumber, red pepper, mayo, red onion, asparagus and some thyme. Spring is here! —Greenkitchenstories

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Millet (rinsed in hot water)
  • 1 pinch Fennel seeds
  • 4 Beetroots
  • 1/2 Zucchini
  • 1 Carrot
  • 1 Onion
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 handful Lemon balm (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon Sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut oil
  1. Boil the water in a small pot. Add millet, salt and fennel and cook it on low temperature for 10 minutes.
  2. Set the cooked millet aside and grate beetroot, zucchini, carrot and onion.
  3. Mix millet, the grated vegetables, eggs and spices in a bowl. If the mixture feels to juicy you can add some flour, oat or some more millet.
  4. Start by test-frying one. Heat coconut oil in a pan and fry the burgers a couple of minutes on each side on medium heat.

Sorry, it was a little bit tricky figuring out how to add the ingredients. But now it's all there.
