Super yummy! Satisfied my craving for greens. I substituted barley for millet because I couldn't find millet! Anyway, it worked out great, but took about twice the cooking time.

Wow! We really, really like this recipe. It was easy to follow and the textures and flavors of the dish are wonderful. All of the ingredients really melded well here, and I wouldn't leave any of them out. A little sprinkling of soy sauce on top is really nice too.

Thanks for a brand new way to use millet! This makes a huge amount of food - I'm getting much more than 4 servings out of this.I will say I left out the vinegar, because I hate tangy greens. It can easily be subbed for white wine - or whatever else happens to be handy. I see this as another good "refrigerator purge" recipe, and would taste great with any number of veggies subbed in. The cilantro is a great touch. Hope more people try this, as of right now it seems like they're missing out!
