Sorghum Veggie Cakes

  • 1 ½ - 2 cups sorghum, cooked
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • Black pepper, to taste


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and mix ground flaxseeds with 2 tablespoons of water in a small bowl. Set aside. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté until slightly softened, then add carrots.
  3. Season with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning and mix with a spatula. Cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Add cooked sorghum to a food processor and pulse until the grains start to stick together. Add the carrot mixture and flaxseed mixture and pulse again until you create a sticky and somewhat homogenous texture.
  5. Form little sorghum veggie cakes from your mixture and line them next to each other on your prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip the cakes and bake for 10-15 more minutes until crispy around the edges.
  6. Serve warm with yogurt sauce, salad, or your favorite sides! Enjoy.


  • Feel free to add your favorite spices to the veggie cakes!
  • If you have an extra 30 minutes, let the batter sit in the fridge to firm up before forming the cakes.
  • You can also fry them in a pan instead of baking them.
