1/2 cup cilantro
1/2 cup dill

1/2 cup red onion
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

How to Make It
Making millet falafel is a breeze!
First cook the millet. This can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to a week. I like to make the millet the day before so it is chilled, and if I am adding chickpeas, I start them soaking at the same time.
1 cup uncooked millet
3 cups water
Pour millet into boiling water and simmer for 25 minutes
Then place all of the ingredients, except for the olive oil, into a food processor. Pulse until everything is combined but still slightly chunky. If it appears too dry, add 1/4 cup of water(if needed) a little at a time until it forms a thick paste. Then scoop out tablespoonfuls of mixture and shape them into small balls or patties. Oil a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, flipping them at 15 minutes. Serve with pita bread or lettuce leaves if desired and enjoy!
There you have it – an easy, tasty millet falafel recipe that takes only minutes to prepare. With this dish, you get all the benefits of protein from the millet plus extra flavor from added herbs and spices. Plus it’s vegan so everyone can enjoy it! For busy moms who want to provide their families with healthy meals without sacrificing time in the kitchen, this is definitely a winner. Enjoy!
