    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    This is a great side dish to accompany any Mexican themed meal, and it's a nice change from rice (the side dish I make most often with Mexican food). Dare to be different sometimes! I always enjoy trying new WHOLE grains. Please, don't let the fact that millet is usually the number one ingredient in bird seed put you off. Millet is highly nutritious, non-glutinous and like buckwheat and quinoa, is not an acid forming food, so is soothing and easy to digest. When cooked, millet is soft, almost creamy with a bit of a crunch on the outside. Recipe adaped from Veganomicon, The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook! I believe original recipe called for fresh tomatoes instead of the canned

      This is very good; but the canned tomatoes, even drained, added a bit more liquid than I like. The original recipe in Veganomicon calls for 1/3 C seeded firm ripe tomato finely chopped. If using canned tomatoes, try seeding them if they're whole. If using petit diced, drain very well and use only 1/3 C to stay truer to the original recipe.
