1 cup millet
3 cups water
1 tsp pure salt
2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
3 TBSP toasted sesame seeds (more or less)

  • Rinse millet in a mesh strainer & drain.
  • Boil water, add salt & millet, cover & simmer on low heat for about 25 mins.
  • Remove from heat & let stand for 5 – 10 mins, covered.
  • While millet is standing, toast sesame seeds in a small skillet over low heat for about 5 mins, stirring frequently to prevent burning.
  • Mix seeds and olive oil into the millet & serve.

SIDE NOTES:

~ Delicious & easy! The toasted seeds & fresh olive oil give this grain a delicious nutty flavor. Add freshly ground black pepper if you’d like & maybe an extra drizzle of olive oil over the top.

 Once cooked, its texture becomes a cross between sticky rice & mashed potatoes.
