Today I made this millet fritters for lunch and they were everything my soul needed so I decided to write down the recipe ASAP and share it with all of you.
If you've never used millet, you might want to give it a try. It's a widely overseen grain in North America and Europe since it's mainly used to feed livestock and birds, but in Asia and Africa it's very common to find it in the kitchen.
It's used as an alternative for rice or couscous, some people eat it as a breakfast cereal and in recent years millet has become a popular wheat flour alternative because it is a gluten-free grain.
I've recently been adding millet to my diet wherever I can, I am discovering all of its benefits and I love it. It's a good source of fiber and protein and has many vitamins and minerals that will protect you against heart disease, it regulates cholesterol levels, helps detoxify the body, reduces blood pressure and helps boost your immune system.
It is also very versatile, for this recipe I mixed in millet with some veggies and boiled them all together in vegetable broth for about 5 minutes and let it sit for about 15 - 20 minutes longer voilà.
The easiest way to make the fritters is by using your hands, that way you can make them the size and shape you want. Since you'll be putting your hands in mixture make sure it's cold enough for you.
What's the best thing to do while you wait for food?
Make more food!
Some good savoy cabbage as a side will make this dish complete. To make this simple side you'll need to heat up a bit of coconut oil, toss the garlic until its aroma is evident, add the onions and cook them until golden brown, add the cabbage and the rest of the ingredients, cook for 5-10 minutes, and that's it!
Now that the cabbage it's ready, back to the fritters!
Once the mixture is cold enough to play with it, it's time to make some patties, shape them as you like, heat up coconut oil in a frying pan, gently put the patties in the pan and do some fritter-flipping until both sides are golden brown.
Serve the fritters and the cabbage side by side and make sure you enjoy this meal warm. I like to make a bunch of fritters since you can always eat them later, just place them in the oven at a low temperature and reheat them for a few minutes, but don't let them sit too long because they can become too dry.
As you can see it is super easy to make this heartwarming meal and the benefits you'll get out of it are countless!
