Paleo Curry Millet Cakes

This is a wonderful paleo recipe for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I often will cook a big pot of sprouted grains or seeds (buckwheat or amaranth) for the week and use it in different ways for our meals. This was millet we had leftover from a hot cereal and I turned it into these yummy savory curry millet cakes. I made a vegan and an egg version. Both turned out great. I served this with simple roasted veggies and stream caught trout. They keep really well and my son enjoyed them for lunch the next day. Perfect for the little ones because they can hold them just like a pb and j.

This recipe made about 9 cakes.

After they brown a bit, add to the mix and stir.

3)Make little patties with your hands, about 3 inch by 3 inch and one inch thick. Place on your prepared pan and put into the oven. Set a timer for 20 minutes, then turn. they should be golden brown and solid throughout.

4) This recipe is great with a mango chutney, a yogurt sauce or even just a little Sir Kensingtons  special sauce. I serve it with roasted veggies and fish.
