        1. In a mug, combine ground flaxseed with 3 Tbsp warm water and stir. Keep it for 10 minutes to form a gel. In a large mixing bowl, add cooked millet, spinach, garlic cloves, lemon zest, ½ tsp salt, black pepper, and ground nutmeg. Then add mozzarella shreds and the flaxseed gel and mix until everything you feel like it will hold together.
        2. Take a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. With a big spoon, scoop up some of the millet mixture. It should be big, about the size of a golf ball. Make about a dozen such balls. Refrigerate them for 30 minutes.
        3. In a shallow bowl, add milk, ground flaxseed. On the other hand, in a shallow plate, combine bread crumbs, grated Parmesan, garlic powder, paprika, dried oregano, remaining salt and black pepper.
        4. Take out the millet balls from the fridge. Coat each ball with the milk/flax and shake off any excess liquid, then coat with the seasoned bread crumbs. Bring them back to the baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes. Flip them halfway through till they turn crisp and golden brown. Serve with any dip.
