Millet Porridge

Millet Porridge created by Jenny Sanders

Looking to add other grains to your diet? Try millet as a hot breakfast cereal. Note: I adopted this as an "authorless" recipe, as it was one I had tried and liked. I have changed the recipe from the original description that it made 2 servings; as I and both other reviewers at this time found that it really makes 1 serving. It can, however, be doubled very easily. I cook mine in my rice cooker which I recommend as a very easy way to make this.

    How do you cook with a rices cooker? Do you use the rice sett or manually set cook time? Thanks.

    This was really good. I bought some millet a couple weeks ago and wasn't sure what to do with it. I'm giving up gluten for a bit to see if it makes me feel better so I thought I'd give this a try for breakfast. I topped it with banana, frozen blueberries and walnuts and left out the raisins. I sweetened it only with a few drops of stevia. I only used an 1/8 tsp of cinnamon and I felt that was plenty.

    Love the format, pics and easy to follow recipe as always on search for tasty, nutritious high alkaline foods for ketogenic diet. Only negative comment . . Why would you recommend using 'artificial sweetener' as they are highly acidic and poisonous? Contribute to Parkinson's, Alzheimer's because of their excitotoxin effects. If you're eating millet for health benefits, please avoid artificial sweeteners. Stevia, not actually considered a sweetener, is considered alkaline. The less sweetener I use, the less I crave it. Otherwise great directions!!
