I prepared this as directed and found it to be a little bit tasteless. Maybe if I had sauteed the vegetables as the other poster did, this would have turned out better for me. Also, the millet was pretty mushy...I think 3 1/2 cups of water might have been too much. It gets points for being easy and healthy, though. Also, it's very filling...a big plus in my book.
