Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked millet
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (2 tsp.)
  • 1 tsp. finely chopped fresh sage, or
  • 1/2 tsp. dried sage
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 cups finely chopped fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs, plus more if needed
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil

Preparation

1. Stir together millet, onion, eggs, garlic, sage, and salt in medium bowl. Stir in spinach, breadcrumbs, feta, and raisins; let stand 5 minutes. If fritters still feel wet, add more breadcrumbs. You should be able to pinch together mixture and have it stick together without oozing. Shape into 12 1/2-cup fritters.

2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add 6 fritters, making sure not to overcrowd pan; cover; and cook 5 to 10 minutes, or until bottoms of fritters are browned. Flip, and cook 5 minutes more, or until browned on second side. Repeat with remaining fritters.
