Moroccan Neat Millet Burger and Neat Foods Review and Giveaway. Vegan Recipe

Print Friendly and PDF




Neat foods sent me samples to review their mixes- Original, Mexican and Italian. The first awesome thing that you notice about them, is that the mixes are Soy-free and Gluten-free! The second cool thing is that there are wholesome, least processed ingredients like garbanzo bean flour, pecans, oats, and spices. Just add flax eggs, cook and you are good to go.

The mix taste and texture reminds me a bit of Sattu. Sattu is a flour mix made of roasted grams or peas and served up in savory or sweet dishes in some Northern parts of India. For the savory version, onions and veggies are added and some water to lump it up. That mixture can be served as is or filled into parathas. I am going to use the Neat mix to stuff Parathas or Naans too!


Chickpea/Garbanzo Bean flour is one of the main ingredients in all the mixes. The chickpea taste is discernible if you go looking for it :). There are is a lot of spices and flavors to mask it though, and you can add more spices, veggies to add to the texture and the flavors. 

I made Moroccan Spiced burgers with Neat original mix and added veggies and millet to it. I also made a Mexican filling with the Mexican mix with no additions. The taste of the mix grows on you and you can other cooked grains and beans and flavors to personal preference. With only flours, spices, no processed stuff and no soy or gluten, this mix is a keeper.

  9. This is such a cool product! I've never seen something that's not processed and full of funky ingredients. I definitely can't wait to try this in a veggie burger. Can you buy this at a regular grocery store?

  13. An Indian or Greek mix would be awesome, but these flavors sound pretty great!

  14. A mix that is also nut free would be fantastic. And perhaps with red lentils instead of chickpeas.

    ReplyDelete
  15. They look delicious! You made me really curious about neat!

  16. An Indian mix would be great. Masala, curry, yes! I like the idea of Greek, too! Gyros, yum! Even an harissa mix. And because of this post, I can see that I could just use the original and add my own spice blends.

    I love how clean the ingredients are, and how well these burgers seem to hold together (at least from the pics). Looks like a great product!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would like a mushroom and herb mix but on the milder side. Sometimes with reflux, I cannot handle spicy things, so I mild option would be a good alternative.
