Millet “Risotto” with greens

Millet is definitely an alternative to rice and quinoa, just because it’s gluten free. But when you think about millet, you probably remember that weird and dry texture, don’t ya? When you cook it this way, though, it’ll become much more creamier and interesting, so don’t hesitate and let’s get into cooking, shall we? 

Millet “Risotto” with greensPin

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 50 minutes

  • Olive oil
  • 1 big organic yellow onion
  • 227g of mushrooms
  • 200g organic sweet baby 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.

“Amina (I SEE YOU’VE STOPPED SHOWING NAMES AGAIN???): It really is good and healthy, isn’t it? The only thing I would change is to add some pepper or hot sauce, as you mentioned. It’s true that we rarely eat raw veggies at home, but the soup has such a great flavor that I think we will start doing it more often. Amina Bokhari is a blogger and a mother of two children.
