Millet is under-appreciated, under-represented, and oft-overlooked. So now is the time to grab your millet out of your pantry, or grab some at the store, and be prepared to be blown away by this simple, delicious, and nutrient packed recipe! As we said, it is so amazingly good that you can serve it as a nutritious, guilt-free dessert, even though millet is considered a cereal. Whether you choose to serve if for breakfast or dessert (or, hey! both!), we’re sure that you will come back to this easy recipe again and again!

This ancient grain (well, technically it’s a seed) is an incredible source of protein, fiber, and antioxidants, among other things. According to gluten-free bread maker Schar, “A cup of cooked millet contains about 207 calories with over 6 grams of protein, 2 grams of dietary fiber, and less than 2 grams of fat. It is rich in minerals like calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and selenium as well as essential vitamins like folate, pantothenic acid, niacin, riboflavin, and Vitamins B6, C, E, and K.” Not only that, adds Schar, but it also “is rich in catechins such as quercetin which boost liver and kidney function”!

We hope this convinces you to give millet a try, if you haven’t already, and either way, here is a great, delicious way to incorporate it into your diet!

Easy Sweet Millet

Ingredients

1 cup whole millet (you will put it in the blender to make ‘cracked millet’)
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon allspice (can sub nutmeg)
2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or other nuts

Directions

Crack the millet: Put the millet in your blender or food processor and process until most of the grains are no longer whole (some flour will accumulate while doing this, and that’s fine). You want the end product to be mostly the consistence of grits or course cornmeal. You don’t want it all to turn into flour, and neither do you want there to be very many whole grains left. This process is known as “cracking”, and the final product is known as ‘cracked millet’.

Put your cracked millet (including any flour that happened) into a saucepan, add the cinnamon and allspice (or nutmeg) and cover with the 2 cups of boiling water.

Let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.

Then uncover it and bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

After simmering for ten minutes add the nuts and simmer for another 5 minutes.

5 minutes after adding the nuts, add the raisins and cook for 5 more minutes.

Remove from heat, stir, and serve. You can serve it plain (you will be amazed at how sweet it is all on its own), or drizzle some maple syrup and/or a bit of plant milk over it.
