Black Bean & Millet Burgers

There has a new book that has been sweeping the food blog nation in the past couple of weeks and of course I immediately want any kind of new and trendy cookbook...but thought I should try out a few internet recipes before committing to the whole book....

Clean Food A Seasonal Guide to Eating Close to the Source with More Than 200 Recipes for a Healthy and Sustainable You

Millet Black Bean Patties with Corn. Before we talk about how DELICIOUS these are..let's talk about how cheap they are. At whole foods last week a pound of millet was 99cents from the bulk bin...all we needed was a cup (about half of that pound.) Add a can of black beans, an onion and some frozen corn along with some spices I already had...and this is the cheapest meal ever that can be refrigerated and re-heated for healthy dinner for days... which comes in handy when you are tied to the couch for a while...

But not only are they cheap, they are really delicious! Packed with flavor and have a great soft texture. Instead of frying them in grapeseed oil per the directions, we threw them on the outdoor bbq and had a delicious meal outside!

Everything was already cooked up before grilling, so we just threw them on the grill to get a little crisp on both sides.. Rob and I both loved them!

I had them with a little spicy salsa on top:

and Rob enjoyed them on bread as an open faced sandwich..

Thanks for the link Jen! The best veggie food is so cheap, isn't it? We made a bunch extra to freeze and just had some again tonight.
