Nutty Millet Porridge


Millet is a high protein, whole grain. Allergen-free and great for special diets, this nutty, sweet hot breakfast cereal will nourish you on a cold winter morning.


1⁄2 cup
dry hulled millet
2 1⁄2 cup
1 pinch
sea salt
1⁄2 tsp
sesame seeds
1 tbsp
sunflower seeds, crushed
2 tsp
2 tbsp
maple syrup
1⁄8 cup
dried fruit (cranberries, raisins or currents)


Heat a dry pot to medium. Add millet. Stir grain with a wooden spoon. After a few minutes the grains will begin to pop and give off a nutty aroma. Add water and salt. Bring to a boil. Simmer for approximately 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Millet will soften like a porridge. Stir in sesame and sunflower seeds. Add butter and maple syrup. Taste and adjust salt or syrup. Ladle into your favorite breakfast bowl. Top with dried fruit of your choice.
