Mildly sweet and nutty, and a good source of B vitamins, this ancient whole grain is easy to digest and naturally gluten-free.
When cooked, millet can be a warm and tasty morning porridge (savory or sweet), or enjoy in pilafs, in Middle Eastern dishes, or as a side course instead of potatoes or rice.
Cooking instructions: As with all grains, we recommend that you rinse the millet before cooking. Put 2½ cups of water in a pot and add 1 cup of millet. Set the stove to a medium high heat; once it boils turn down the heat and loosely cover with a lid. After 20-25 minutes all the water should be absorbed and the millet cooked. If you have time, let sit for 10 minutes before eating to optimize the texture and flavor. Use ½ cup more water if the texture is too crunchy for you!
To introduce a nuttier flavor to the millet, you can roast the grains first before boiling. To do this, place the grains in a dry skillet over medium heat and stir them frequently. When they have achieved a golden color, add them to the boiling water. Millet more than doubles in quantity when cooked.
