Cooked millet replaces bread crumbs in this recipe for added fiber and nutrition. To make it, toast 1/4 cup dried millet in a saucepan until kernels start to pop; carefully add 3/4 cup boiling water and simmer for 15 minutes until water is absorbed. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Serve on gluten-free buns with honey mustard and lettuce.
- 1/2 cup cooked millet
- 2 egg whites
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 3/4 pound ground turkey breast
- 5 ounces frozen, chopped spinach, defrosted
- Preheat oven to 375º. Put millet, egg, oil, onion powder, allspice, sage, and salt in a medium bowl or the bowl of an upright mixer. Mix on medium speed for 1 minute (or mix by hand). Add ground turkey. Mix on low speed just until combined.
- Squeeze excess water from spinach; then crumble over other ingredients. Mix briefly just to combine. Shape into four patties, using wet hands (mixture will be very soft).
- Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking oil. Arrange burgers on baking sheet. Bake for 25–30 minutes, or until cooked through, turning once. Serve on toasted rolls with mustard and lettuce.
