Spiced Millet and Chickpea Burgers

1/2 cup Organic Millets
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup water
1 onion diced
1 tbs olive oil
1 tsp ground turmeric
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 cloves garlic minced
1/3 cup parsley roughly chopped
1/4 cup mint roughly chopped
juice of half a lemon
1 tbsp preserved lemon rind finely chopped
1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce, gluten-free variety if needed
salt and pepper
1/3 cup Organic Oats
1/2 cup Organic Chickpeas, cooked, and roughly chopped
2 eggs
1 tbsp olive oil extra


Add the millet to a saucepan over a medium heat and toast for 4 to 5 minutes, or until it smells toasty and the millet starts to turn golden. Add the water and salt and stir well and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce the heat to low and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and stand for 10 minutes before fluffing up with a fork. Allow the millet to cool completely before making the burgers.

Meanwhile, place a frying pan over a medium low heat, and add the olive oil and turmeric, coriander, cumin and cinnamon and fry the onion until the onion is softened and the spices fragrant. Set aside to cool.

Combine the millet, onion, garlic, herbs, lemon juice, preserved lemon, soy, chickpeas and oat flakes in a large bowl. Check the seasoning of the mix and add salt and pepper to taste. Add the eggs and mix well. Form the mixture into burgers (the mixture should make roughly 6) and place on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Place a large frying pan over a medium heat and add the olive oil and cook the burgers on 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until golden.
