Adopted! An easy, healthy side dish with a very pretty presentation. Try adding additional seasoning (spices, herbs) as desired.

I won't rate it for 2 reasons. First, I changed it quite a bit; added 2 eggs, 1/2 cup heavy cream and cubbed and shredded cheese. (My husband thought it was not bad like this.) Second, I guess I just don't like millet; it's an almost tasteless addition...
