 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Cooked millet; (see note)
  • 1/4 c Yellow onion; minced
  • 1/2 c Button mushrooms; minced
  • 1 lg Egg; beaten
  • 1 Egg white; beaten
  • 1/2 ts Garlic powder
  • 3 ts Dried parsley
  • 1/2 ts Ground black pepper
  • 1/2 c Dry bread crumbs; (or more
  • -if needed)
  • 6 c Prepared marinara sauce


Combine all ingredients, except bread crumbs and sauce, in mixing bowl.
Stirring constantly, add bread crumbs until mixture is firm enough to form
into balls. Using wet hands, shape mixture into balls, using about 1 1/2
tablespoons mixture per ball. Balls can be frozen at this point or simmered
in sauce for 30 minutes.

Alternatively, balls can be baked in oven on lightly oiled baking sheet at
325 degrees for 30 minutes then served with warm sauce. Makes about 20 to
22 meatless balls or about 7 servings of 3 balls each with 1/2 cup sauce.

NOTE: To cook millet, bring 1 cup millet and 2 1/2 cups water to a boil.
Cover with a tight-fitting lid and reduce heat to medium. Cook 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and let sit uncovered for 20 minutes.

Yields about 3 cups.
