Spotlight On: Millet and What to Do With It!

by Nicole on January 12, 2012

Happy almost end of the week! Did any of you sign up for another social network yesterday?

I made millet last week and it was only the 2nd or 3rd time I made it. I bought it months ago, but it’s one of those things that got tossed in the back of my pantry…along with some other grains like amaranth. Guess you’ll be seein’ that next week…

Last week I decided to make it because I couldn’t find my quinoa (which ended up being right in front of my face) and I had no rice left. I was having some people over for dinner and I wanted to make a grain. I usually don’t try new things when I have company…but I kept my fingers crossed. How bad could it taste? Luckily it turned out very well.

You know I’m all about whole grains and since I usually eat quinoa for breakfast every single morning (I’m SO boring & love habits & routines) I like to switch up grains I eat later in the day…plus it also resembles bird food and you should know I LOVE my food to look like bird food.

Switch things up and give this grain a try! PLUS it cooks in 25 minutes, faster than rice!

Millet and Kale mixed with MamaPea’s mmmm sauce is a favorite dinner of mine. I mix millet into soup sometimes as well to give it a bit more substance.

I’ve never had millet but I’m trying to expand my grain-eating habits so I’ll keep this is mind :)

I’ve been meaning to pick up some millet – I don’t think I’ve ever made it myself!

Glad you posted this. I made a New Years Resolution (well, MANY resolutions) and one of them was to eat a whole grain everyday. I practically live on brown rice and quinoa, and have wanted to try some new grains but just haven’t given them a chance. Millet was actually the one I wanted to do next… then maybe buckwheat. Got any tips for buckwheat?

also, I test low magnesium ALLL THE TIME… and it has a bad impact on my vit. D absorption… which caused a really bad back injury… so Millet could be the way to go!
