In a pan, on medium heat, sauté' onions and garlic for about a minute.
Add celery and continue to cook for a minute or two until celery is translucent.
Now add the corn and peas and toss them around for an additional minute.
Remove from heat and let cool.
In a big bowl mix millet, rice, beans and rest of the cooked ingredients.
In a small bowl, beat the egg. Pour into the big bowl of ingredients above.
Add mustard, ketchup, herbs, salt and pepper. Mix all ingredients.
Lastly, add the bread crumbs and fold a few times. I use my hands to mix everything gently as it is easier, mixes evenly and does not make the mixture too mushy.
Take a small scoop of the prepared mix and form into small to medium sized, tight burger patties.
Heat your griddle pan to medium heat. Season the surface with oil.
Now place the burger gently on one side. Let cook for 3-4 minutes. It will start to brown.
Flip to the other side and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
That's it! You can have this burger over a healthy green salad, or with any burger bun of your choice. It's the perfect burger to devour this season as we enjoy the beautiful bounty of autumn colors.
