    3       tb           Tamari
      1/4   ts           Pepper
    1       md           Carrot -- grated
    1 1/3   c            Herbed Bread Crumbs (see
                         -recipe)
                         Walnut halves or parsley
                         -sprigs, for garnish
 
    In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil over
   medium-high heat. Stir in the millet, cover, reduce
   the heat, and simmer until the water is absorbed, 20
   to 30 minutes. (The millet must be freshly cooked and
   still warm to form the patties).
   
    Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan over
   medium-high heat. Add the celery and onion and cook,
   until softened, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a large
   bowl.
   
    In a food preocessor fitted with the metal blade,
   combine the bread, walnuts, parsley, basil, thyme and
   tamari and process until coarsely chopped. Add to the
   onion/celery mixture.
   
    Add the cooked millet to the onion mixture, along
   with the grated carrot, and stir to mix.
   
    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly oil a baking
   sheet.
   
    Shape the warm millet mixture into 2-inch patties
   (about 1/2 cup) to serve as a main dish or 1-inch
   patties (about 1/8) cup for an appetizer. Roll each
   patty in the Herbed Bread Crumbs, patting to make the
   crumbs adhere, and put on the baking sheet. Bake until
   lightly browned, 20 to 30 minutes.
   
    Arrange the patties on a serving platter and garnish
   each one with a walnut half or a sprig of parsley.
