    Debbie, this is a great guide to cooking millet, which worked really well. I use millet a lot and normally just put it into cold water, bring it to a boil and let it absorb the liquid. But I was curious about the toasting method, so I gave that a try. It worked out nicely and gave the millet just the slightest touch more of flavour. It somehow came through more than usually in the dish I used it in. However I normally use only double the amount of water and not triple and found the millet a little bit on the mushy side using this method. All in all a great variation on just plain old millet. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this here with us, Debbie! Made and reviewed for my chosen chef during Veggie Swap #21 April 2010.
