The Healthy Whole Grain - Organic Hulled Millet

Millet is mildly sweet and has a slight nutty flavour.
It can be cooked in many ways and added into many dishes.
Like salads and soups. 
Millet flour can be used to make bread, muffins, pitas..and the list goes on...
the most important thing is that millet adds fiber to your meals.

I replaced rice with millet, hoping that my dinner will be healthier.
it's my first try, and feel quite weird eating bird's food! HEHE!

A closer look at millet.
It looks like rice, but a lot smaller in grain size.
I steamed chicken, broccoli, cauliflower and carrot to go with it.
Sprinkled black pepper, and that's my dinner..

It's soft and fluffy,
But guess I need sometime to adjust to this taste.

Now, I would like to share how did I cook the millet.
Use 1 cup of millet : 3 cups of water
Boil for about 20 minutes when water has dried up.
Alternatively, it can be cooked in thermal cooker for 1 hour, or until water drys up.
Fluff the grains with a fork and serve.


  1. Coraine.. suggest you mix it with some other grains.. will taste better.. that is what i do... =)

  2. I've tried rice with millet and it’s delicious. Great idea, Coraine. I'll try others too.
