LOOKING for: Recipes using millet

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.

RE: LOOKING for: Recipes using millet

If you or anyone out there is interested, here's a good breakfast cereal recipe:

Preheat over to 325

You will need:
3Tblsp butter
1.5-2 C peeled diced winter squash
2.75 C milk (or Soy, Rice, etc. milk)
1C millet
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.
