As many readers of this blog surely know, the Seventh-day Adventist Church encourages (but does not require) a vegan (or vegan + honey) diet. I have quite a few Adventist cookbooks, and you can check out currently available ones via the Adventist Book Center. One of my oldest Adventist books is Ten Talents by Rosalie and Frank Hurd, from 1968. It has been hard to find in the past, but is now back in print.
I wanted to try a recipe I've never made before, and picked the millet - pumpkin seed patties. These just happen to be soy-free, gluten-free, and completely delicious. We will definitely make them again.
4 c cooked millet
1 c cooked brown rice
1 c raw pumpkin seeds, ground fine
1/4 c cashew nuts, ground - or cashew butter
3 T oil
1 t salt
1 t onion powder
1 t sage
Mix everything together, form patties, and fry. These patties want to stick, so you need a well-seasoned or non-stick skillet, thoroughly heated, with enough oil. The Hurds say you can bake them, but I haven't tried that. They are nice and crispy on the outside, and creamy on the inside. You can sprinkle them with paprika if you want more color. The Hurds suggest serving the patties with their Cashew Milk Gravy, which is both easy and tasty:
2 c water
1/2 c cashew nuts
2 T arrowroot
2 t onion powder
2 T oil
1/2 t salt
Blend thoroughly until completely smooth. Cook in a saucepan over medium heat, whisking, until thick.
