Roasted Yam Millet Patties

Yam Millet Patties with Cilantro Pesto

These Nutritious Moist Patties are a staple on our Catering Menus. Millet is alkalizing and has a high amino acid profile. It is also gluten free and soothing to digestion. The batter freezes well. Just thaw and add a drizzle of olive oil to moisten.

So yummy served with Cilantro Pesto

*Did you know? Millet is thought to have originated in North Africa, specifically in Ethiopia, where it has been consumed since prehistoric times. There is even mention of millet in the Bible as an ingredient for unleavened bread.

These are inspired by our friend and founder of ‘The Good for You Gourmet’ ~ Laura Moore
