Beetroot and Millet Burgers

15 Sep

Well the title may say burgers, but mine certainly didn’t work out as burgers!!  My burgers kind of stayed together but I admitted defeat and enjoyed the burgers crumbled over a salad instead.

This recipe is from the Green Kitchen app which I have converted for the thermomix.

You will need:

250g water

125g raw millet

1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds

pinch of sea salt

4 small beetroot, quartered

1/2 zucchini chopped into 3 cm pieces

1 large carrot chopped into 3 cm pieces

1 onion halved

4 eggs

handful of parsley

sea salt and pepper


Place water in a small pot and bring to the boil.  Add millet, salt and fennel and simmer for approximately 10 minutes or until tender and set aside.

Place parsley into TM bowl and chop for 1-2 seconds, speed 8.  Add beetroot, zucchini, carrot and onion and chop for 4-5 seconds on speed 5.  Scrape down the sides and check the consistency.  You may want to chop for a further few seconds.

Add the millet, eggs, salt and pepper to the vegetables and mix on reverse, 5 seconds, speed 5.  If the mixture feels too juicy, you can add some flour, oats or more millet.

Cook in a pan for two mins each side and serve as traditional burgers or with some salad.  In my case crumble the beetroot burgers over a salad and enjoy as a beetroot, millet salad!

Enjoy xx
