    Sharon123's Note:

    A round golden grain that resembles couscous, millet reamains the primary grain in much of Asia and parts of Africa. Americans know it mostly as birdseed, but it deserves a place at our tables for it's light, pleasant taste. Millet is rich in B vitamins, surpassing even brown rice and whole wheat. Millet can be a bit quirky to cook. Unless you steam it for an hour. as you would couscous, millet doesn't cook into even, separate grains. Some grains will be soft, like mashed potatoes, while others are still crunchy. This is part of its appeal. Information and recipe from Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone cookbook.

      My first time trying Millet! I had some in my cupboard forever. It's pretty good but a bit bland. I like it much better than couscous. It seems like it will be very versatile. I'm going to have some of the leftovers with butter and honey like oatmeal and others with curry over them like rice. I was intrigued by the nutrition and fiber in millet and I think it will be a regular on my table. Freddy Cat says hi! Made in honor of Sharon's husband via kittencalskitchen.com.
