A fresh way to enjoy millet, which is very good for you, inexpensive and easy to cook. This recipe contains many different textures, which helps avoid that heavy, "healthy-tasting" kind of grains dish vegetarians know so well . . .

Top Review by Matt and Aimee

Wow! It doesn't SEEM like it would be very complex, but the flavor was hearty, toasty, fresh. We absolutely loved this and made it exactly as instructed. We are definitely making it again and might try some variations just for fun, but it is wonderful as-is. Thank you!
