Millet Black Bean Patties
Spicy Chipotle Sauce
Pineapple Avocado Salsa
  • 1 1/2 avocado (diced)
  • 3/4 cup diced pineapple chunks
  • Juice of 1 lime
Spicy Chipotle Sauce
  1. Combine all ingredients, except water, in a high speed blender and puree until smooth. Add water as necessary to thin to desired consistency.
Pineapple Avocado Salsa
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and toss to combine.
Millet Black Bean Patties:
  1. Place black beans in a large mixing bowl and smash with a potato masher or fork. Add all the other ingredients and mix well to combine.
  2. Take about 1/4 cup of the mix and form it into a patty with your hands. Place on a plate and repeat with the remaining mixtures.
  3. Heat 1-2 tbsp of oil in a pan on the stove over medium-high heat. Once hot, place 2-4 patties in the pan, spaced evenly (depending on pan size - do not over crowd the pan).
  4. Cook 4-5 minutes each side until crispy on the outside and heated through. Adjust heat as necessary while cooking....every stove is different. You want it hot enough to crisp up the outside, but not too hot that it burns before the patty is heated through.
  5. Serve with the Spicy Chipotle Sauce and Pineapple Avocado Salsa on top or on the side. 

Recipe Notes

~I like to form the patties first and set them aside to rest while assembling the ingredients for the Chipotle Sauce and Salsa. Pan fry the patties on the first side while making the Chipotle Sauce, flip them and cook on the other side while making the Salsa. Just keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn.

~Update 7-16-15: I did try baking these a couple weeks ago and they turned out great. I didn't like them quite as much as the pan frying method, but they were still very good. And baking them requires NO oil!! Try it and let me know what you think!
