Stovetop Millet

Notes

Recipe Notes

  • For more flavor, cook with broth instead of water.
  • Enjoy millet like rice or bulgar in grain salads, grain bowls, soups or stir-fries.
  • For a nuttier flavor, you can first toast the millet in the saucepan for a few minutes over medium heat. Then add the water and continue with cooking directions.
  • For cooked cereal, use 3 cups of water and stir often while cooking. Top with any type of fruit, milk or nuts and seeds or use savory toppings such as grated cheese and sautéed vegetables.
  • Slice leftovers, then reheat and top with a stew or stir-fry.
