DIRECTIONS

  • Heat a small amount of sesame oil in a saucepan and saute the ginger for 2-3 minutes with a sprinkling of salt.
  • Add the millet and saute until well-coated with oil and it gives off a nutty fragrance.
  • Add boiling water, season lightly with salt and reduce heat to low.
  • Cover and simmer for 35 minutes.
  • Add veggies, re-cover and simmer for about 5 more minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in corn meal.
  • Allow the mixture to stand for 10-15 minutes before forming burgers.
  • Shape millet mixture into thick patties.
  • Heat enough sesame oil in a skillet to pan-fry the burgers.
  • You will need to make the oil about 1/8-inch deep to fry evenly.
  • Fry until golden, about 3 minutes each side.
  • Remove from the skillet and drain on paper.
  • Serve as you would any conventional burger.
