Recently, we posted a lot of typical Christmas recipes for you. Today, for a change, we have a fit & vegetarian recipe. The recipe is easy and quick to do. Perfect for busy people, especially in such period like Christmas. Millet croquettes are a healthy way and at the same time delicious dinner.

Croquettes are very healthy, cause based on millet, which is gluten-free and easily digestible. Millet is a great alternative to potatoes, pasta or rice and is easy to prepare. 

Croquettes tastes great, no wonder we like it so much! The outside gets crispy and the inside stays soft. We are just in love with them, so yummy!

We have made this recipe with spinach, garlic and cheese, but feel free to experiment. This recipe is also a great way of using leftover cooked millet. 

So let’s get ready for cooking.

  • about 2/3 cup of millet
