Fabulous Lemon Basil Millet Burgers with Mango Salsa

Journal of Gluten Sensitivity Winter 2016 Issue - Originally published January 5, 2016

Celiac.com 04/05/2016 - These fresh-tasting burgers make an easy weeknight meal. No buns here; you can serve these wrapped in romaine or Bibb lettuce leaves and eat them with your hands. Make sure your millet isn't too dry or the burgers won't stick together!

Serves 6

Fabulous Lemon Basil Millet BurgersIngredients:

  • 1 cup millet
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt, plus a pinch for cooking millet
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and grated
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 ½ teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 6 large romaine or Bibb lettuce leaves
  • 1 recipe Mango Salsa, for serving
  • Large drizzle Cumin Cashew Cream Sauce, for serving

Directions:
Cook the millet with a pinch of salt. Set aside to cool.

Combine the flax seeds and water in a small bowl; set aside for 10 minutes until the mixture forms a gel, then mix well.

While the millet is cooking, combine the carrots, scallions, basil, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Once the millet is cool, add it to the bowl with the flax seed mixture and mix well. Using your hands, shape the mixture into six burgers.

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Place the burgers in the pan and cook until golden brown, 7 to 8 minutes on each side. Serve warm wrapped in lettuce leaves with a dollop of Mango Salsa and a drizzle of Cumin Cashew Cream Sauce on top. Uncooked burgers will keep for up to 4 days in the refrigerator or 1 month in the freezer, stored between pieces of parchment paper in a sealed container.
