Dave says this makes a great hamburger substitute. It makes a large amount so you can freeze the leftovers and use them later.


  • 3 cups millet
  • 1 cup lentils
  • 9 cups water
  • 4 tbsp basil
  • 4 tbsp poultry seasoning
  • 4 tbsp sage
  • 1 onion, chopped


Place all ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer, and cook covered for about 40 minutes. Place cooked contents onto large parchment paper lined baking sheet and spread evenly. Bake in oven at 250 for about 2 hours.

Use the baked product as a hamburger substitute in chili, spaghetti sauce, or other hearty casseroles.
