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.

Thank you for this comforting and yes, nourishing recipe. I sauteed the onions with garlic, the carrots, cabbage and squash and added some chinese greens. Then I followed as you said but just threw in a bay leaf, some all purpose seasoning, salt and pepper and sage and a level tablespoon of butter because I felt it needed a little fat and more salt and pepper. LOVE This and will use it many times, and can mix up the vegies too!
