 ½ cup finely diced onions
 1-3 cloves minced garlic
 ½ cup broccoli, finely diced
 ¼ red bell pepper, finely diced
 1 teaspoon oregano powder
 ¼ teaspoon cumin powder
 ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt (optional)

Preheat oven to 400° F.


Combine millet, lentils, and broccoli. Add sweet potatoes and quick oats and mix well until you can form a patty.


Add bread crumbs, sweet potatoes, and quick oats, red bell peppers spices, and salt. Gently mix into your dough.


Form patties and place on parchment paper sheets or a well-oiled pan.


Bake 10-12 minutes until patties are a bit crispy around the edges. Remove from oven and flip. Continue to bake for 8-12 minutes or until patties feel firm.


Add toppings and condiments of choice.

Note: Bake or steam sweet potatoes to cook. Do not boil as this dilutes the flavor.
