Recipe: Delightful Millet
Mind you, I wanted to title the post "Millet, the Friendly Stranger", since it rarely enters in my grocery list (I use it only in one recipe for soup, of all things) and despite loving it, as most dry foods, I tend to forget it in the pantry. So for me it is some sort of friendly stranger. But wait: that is also the name of a well known.... ermh.... herb shop. Not 'herbal': that place sells weed. Legally or illegally, I don't know. And since this wants to be a kid-save zone, that title started to sound wrong in my head: I do not want to promote any sort of smoking activity in here!
Anyhow, I will hand out the post to Danielle from Supper And The Single Girl now, who was so kind to donate to the club a fantastic millet recipe (very worth trying, especially if you like those half salty/half sweet dishes. I have also tried it with quinoa and dried prunes and raisins and it was delish!), which you can see pictured below.
1/2 cup pine nuts
1 cup millet
2 cups water
1/4 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
1 tsp coriander
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
Add water, dried fruit, and seasonings and stir until water comes to boil. Lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until water is absorbed. Serve.
I have to confess I keep playing with the coriander and nutritional yeast amounts. I'm also playing with the instructions a bit.
