SIDE NOTES:

Delicious as is, or can add gravy of choice, a pat of butter, or a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Nice alternative to mashed potatoes & if you have kids that are picky eaters – a good way to sneak in hidden vegetables. Millet is a very nutritious grain, well worth throwing in rotation at least every now & then if you like it.

 For those with various food restrictions, this recipe falls into the following categories:

Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Nut Free, Sugar Free, Grain Free, Vegan, Raw

If eating dairy free, use coconut oil instead of butter.

    Ariane stumbled across this recipe and we like it a lot. I used 3C of chicken stock instead of water. Makes a great lunch at the office the next day!
