This is my very own creation and something I ate and craved often during my last pregnancy. This is definitely a hot and spicy dish but the quark cools it off a bit. One of my favorite ways to eat millet.
- 1 cup millet (washed and drained)
- 2 cups water
- 1 vegetable bouillon cube
- 1 medium onion
- 1 large carrot (or any other crunchy vegetable that takes yer fancy)
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 small hot red chili pepper
- clarified butter or coconut oil
- 1⁄2 cup low-fat Quark cheese or 1⁄2 cup low-fat ricotta
- 1⁄4 cup gouda cheese or 1⁄4 cup edam cheese, grated
- cilantro, chopped (garnish)
- Prepare Millet.
- Put millet, water, and boullion cube into a heavy flameproof casserole or other heavy pot. Bring to a boil and cook for five minutes. Reduce heat to low setting and put lid on casserole letting millet absorb water for 20 minutes or so until done.
- Meanwhile finely chop the onion, carrot, bell pepper, and hot chili pepper.
- Saute onion and peppers in a heavy skillet and then add carrot and chili pepper and cook until crisp tender. Add cooked millet to the mix, remove from stove, and stir in quark (or ricotta).
- Serve with a sprinkling of cheese and garnish with cilantro.
- If can’t handle the fire change this to a “heavenly hash” (heh, heh) by omitting the red hot chili pepper. Good served with a crisp salad and fresh fruit for dessert.
