Millet “Risotto” with greens

Usually millet has a dryer texture like couscous. Cooked this way, it becomes creamier and interesting. I got the idea from the book “Supergrains: Cook your way to great health” an made a few modifications. It is an alternative to rice and quinoa and it’s gluten free.

You can also cook it like rice in a 2 part of water for one part of millet for about 20 minutes, sometimes you may need to add a bit of water. But the result won’t be the same.

Preparation time 10 minutes

Cooking time 50 minutes

  • Olive oil
  • 1 big organic yellow onion
  • 227g of mushrooms
  • 200g organic sweet baby broccoliBaby broccoli
  • 200g organic snow peas
  • 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of organic sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of cheese
  • 4 cups (1000ml) of organic vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 cup (375ml) of organic millet
  1. Stir the millet and the balance of the onion, so all the grains are coved with oil. Add 1/2 cup of vegetable broth until it’s all absorbed then continue to add 1/2 cup at the time until you put it all. Add the cheese and stir for 2-3 minutes until it’s creamy. You may need to add a bit more water.
  2. In the meantime, thinly slice the mushrooms. In a pan over medium heat, put the oil and add the mushrooms, add salt & pepper. Don’t stir them right away, let the turn brown. If you play with them too much, they will release more water and start to boil. Finely chop the onion. Add 1/2 of it in your pan and let cook for 5 minutes. Add the baby broccoli and the snow peas and cover for 10 minutes.

Serve your vegetables on top of your millet. Very tasty!
