Millet Cakes at Maine Food & Lifestyle

Birds love it, and it makes excellent stuffing for juggling beanbags. It tastes like couscous and it's gluten-free. Millet is cool, but after you've filled your hacky sack and made pilaf, what can you do with it?

Head on over to Maine Food & Lifestyle for my recipe for White Bean and Mushroom Millet Cakes.

  1. Great recipe! I'm always looking for new ways to play around with my jar of millet and I think these are going to get a go soon.

  2. This is brilliant!! I was craving a bean burger, at the same time I was looking for something to do with the navy beans in my cupboard. I haven't yet adapted my black bean burger to be gf, so this is perfect. Thanks! :)

  3. I just bought some millet yesterday with a plan to make it into a dessert - a flan. But maybe I'll make millet cakes, instead. I used to eat millet regularly but seem to have forgotten about it lately.

  4. That looks and sounds absolutely amazing! I have never eaten millet before but I love the sound of it and I'm so impressed that you can make a very nice and fancy dish from it. Thanks for the link to the recipe, Mary!

  6. These look really good! I tried a bite of Erin (of Vegan Homemade)'s millet cake in her entree at Millennium Restaurant and it was amazing. These look almost just like those.

  8. just discovered your blog while googling anything about Flying Apron's cookbook.
    it's so pretty here - lovely photos and clean layout.
    i took a stab at de-glutening one of my fave cookie recipes last week... they're okay (with tahini and ginger), but not award winning. ah, the trials of vegan baking that lets go of both wheat and spelt (my fall-back grain for the past few years).

    ps. millet's one of my favourite foods!

  10. We tried these over the weekend and they are Fabulous! Of course we are mushroom lovers and I would add some mushroom variety in the future. regardless, these were not only delicious, but fairly quick to prepare and stuck together well (there's nothing worse than a crumbly cake).

    The best (or worst) part is that I ate two of them for breakfast the next morning - straight from the fridge - cold and with my hands. Mmmmm.

  11. Thanks, SeanG! Glad you liked this recipe. I'm sure these would be delicious with all kinds of mushrooms. I enjoyed the leftovers cold, too!
