Simple Quinoa & Millet Pilaf

Posted by on Jul 13, 2010 | Comments Off on Simple Quinoa & Millet Pilaf

1 cup quinoa
1 cup millet
1/2 tsp pure salt

  • Rinse the grains well in a fine mesh strainer.
  • Add the grains to a dry saucepan over medium-low heat.
  • Stir with a wooden spoon until all of the water (clinging to the grains from rinsing) has evaporated.
  • Continue stirring until the grains emit a faint, roasted aroma.
  • Add 4 cups water & the salt.
  • Stir once to dislodge any grains that might have stuck to the bottom.
  • Cover & bring to a boil.
  • Lower the heat & simmer, covered, for about 10 mins, or until the water is absorbed.
  • Let the pilaf sit, covered, for 5 mins before fluffing with a fork.
