Millet is small, round and comes in a variety colours from white to grey to yellow to red. It is technically a seed (so it's naturally gluten-free), but usually classified as a wholegrain.
As with many ancient grains (like quinoa, spelt, and amaranth), millet ranks very high as a source of nutrients. It's loaded with folate and choline and provides other important minerals like magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and zinc. Serving for serving, millet offers more dietary fibre and antioxidants than most other grains.
Cooking with Millet
Like all grains, before cooking millet rinse it thoroughly. Then add one-part millet to two and a half parts boiling water or broth and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat, cover and simmer for about 25 minutes. The texture of millet cooked this way will be fluffy like rice. If you want the millet to have a creamier consistency, stir it frequently adding a little water every now and then.
Cooked millet makes an interesting breakfast porridge with nuts or fruit. Or try grinding the millet and adding to bread or muffin recipes. Try using it in place of rice or quinoa alongside vegetable stir-fries and savoury pilafs.
