Millet is a type of grain cultivated in East Asia. It is safe to eat for those with celiac disease, making it a good grain to store in your food storage in place of wheat.
I believe Mountain Man added dried parsley and oregano, and a little lemon juice to this version.
I thought millet tasted like a cross between couscous and quinoa. With the right seasonings, it was quite delicious.
1 cup millet
3 cups water
salt and pepper
other seasonings (optional)
Combine millet and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat, let simmer for 12 minutes. Remove from heat entirely and let sit for 20 minutes (keep covered). Fluff with a fork and add seasonings as desired.
