I adapted this recipe from Whole Living. If you've never tried millet, don't let the name fool you it's excellent. The texture is like a moist fluffy couscous. Millet is a complete protein and full of vitamins! This recipe is so light and simple and oh-so-good for you!

  1. Place millet and ginger in a small saucepan. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and water. Bring to a boil, stir once, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 25 minutes. Allow to rest for 10 minutes, then fluff with a fork, add beans.
  2. • Steam shiitakes in a steamer over boiling water, covered, for 3 minutes. Add carrots and bok choy and steam 4 to 6 minutes more. Remove steamer from heat.
  3. • In a small bowl, whisk together oil and vinegar to make dressing. Season with a dash of salt.
  4. • Transfer millet to bowls and garnish with steamed and remaining raw vegetables. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour dressing over top and sprinkle with sunflower seeds.
