Some people think millet is a little tasteless but it doesn’t have to be when you cook it well!
What learned in my hippie day was to lightly toast it before cooking. This gives it a richer nutty flavour. Millet has thus become a favourite gluten-free grain of mine!
How to Cook Millet
- 1 cup millet
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
- Dry sauté on medium heat till golden brown, stirring constantly. NOTE: If you hear a POPPING noise, your heat is too high.
- Add water and sea salt.
- Cover with the lid, bring to a boil and simmer for 25 to 35 minutes, till all the water is absorbed (millet should be dry).
- OR this only works on an electric stove. Cover with the lid, bring to a boil and simmer for a few minutes, then turn off the heat. Leave on an electric stove burner that you have been cooking on with the lid on (do not peek) Leave for 30 minutes; all the water will be absorbed (millet should be dry).
