For some reason I bought a lot of millet. Now don`t know what to do with it !! Except I do toss a handful into the bread (machine) but it doesn`t cook - just stays granular and hard. Like to try something else. TIA
Cook it like rice in no-fat broth and serve with beans. Put it in soups or sprinkle some, cooked, on salads. Serve it like you would rice.
If you or anyone out there is interested, here's a good breakfast cereal recipe:
Preheat over to 325
You will need:
1.5-2 C peeled diced winter squash
2.75 C milk (or Soy, Rice, etc. milk)
pinch of salt
spoonful of honey
Melt the butter in an oven safe casserole. Saute the squash until slightly soft, 5-6 minutes. Add the milk, bring to a boil.
Toast the millet in a pan over med-hi heat until golden (5 min., and remember to stir it!)Add to squash. Add salt and honey and stir until dissolved. Reduce heat to low, cover, & cook until liquid is almost absorbed - 15-20 min (more or less, usually more).
Place covered cassarole in oven and bake until millet is dry,25-30 minutes.
This is a really tasty breakfast but it does take time (an hour or so). But its definitely worth it.
