"Steamed Millet"

This recipe was taken from Natural Meals in Minutes
(see my web site to purchase this amazing cookbook!)
1 cup millet
2 1/4 cups water *
1 teaspoon olive oil or butter
1/4 teaspoon salt

Rinse millet and drain in a strainer. Place in a saucepan, add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until all water has been absorbed. Turn off heat and let stand, covered for 5 minutes. Fluff millet with fork and serve. Makes approximately 4 cups.

* Variation: Use vegetable or chicken stock instead of water and serve as a side dish.

Note from Paula: We have made this for breakfast and added maple syrup and butter. Just as you would 'doctor' your oatmeal, you can doctor you millet and have a great hot cereal! It is rather sticky but a nice change from your typical hot cereal. This is a great way to add a different grain to your diet.

If you are local to Tulsa, OK, you can join our Walton Truck orders (see my web site for instructions) or go to your local health food store.
