Millet makes a good grain base here because it gives these burgers added body with a pleasantly mild flavor. Look for it at natural-foods stores.
Storage smarts: For long-term freezer storage, wrap your food in a layer of plastic wrap followed by a layer of foil. The plastic will help prevent freezer burn while the foil will help keep off-odors from seeping into the food.
