  2. Pucks: Preheat oven to 350F. Grease 6 cups of a standard-size muffin tin.
  3. While millet cooks, whisk the 3/4 cup water, chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, 2 teaspoons of the oil, sriracha and salt in a large bowl until blended. In a large skillet, cook the kale and garlic in remaining teaspoon oil over medium-high heat until kale is wilted.
  4. Stir the kale and millet into the chickpea batter; divided evenly among prepared cups, smoothing tops.
