“Risotto” of millet with greens

Rate this post

Millet is a great alternative to rice and quinoa since it is gluten free. Nevertheless, when you think about millet, you undoubtedly recall its strange and dry feel, don’t you? When cooked this manner, it becomes more creamier and more intriguing, so don’t delay and let’s get started, shall we?

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Time to cook: 50 minutes

  • Olive oil
  • 1 big organic yellow onion
  • 227g of mushrooms
  • 200g organic sweet baby broccoli
  • 200g organic snow peas
  • 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of organic sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of cheese
  • 4 cups (1000ml) of organic vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 cup (375ml) of organic millet
  1. Stir the millet and the balance of the onion, so all the grains are coved with oil. Add 1/2 cup of vegetable broth until it’s all absorbed then continue to add 1/2 cup at the time until you put it all. Add the cheese and stir for 2-3 minutes until it’s creamy. You may need to add a bit more water.
  2. In the meantime, thinly slice the mushrooms. In a pan over medium heat, put the oil and add the mushrooms, add salt & pepper. Don’t stir them right away, let the turn brown. If you play with them too much, they will release more water and start to boil. Finely chop the onion. Add 1/2 of it in your pan and let cook for 5 minutes. Add the baby broccoli and the snow peas and cover for 10 minutes.

Yummy! I believe it needs some pepper or spicy sauce. Maybe ketchup or whatever, I’m not sure, but it’s fantastic ersh

Yummy. Could you use frozen pre-cut cauliflower and broccoli?

This looks wonderful and nutritious! Such a wonderful family soup.

Amina (I SEE YOU’VE QUIT SHOWING NAMES AGAIN???): Isn’t it extremely delicious and healthy? The only thing I would add is some pepper or spicy sauce, like you suggested. Its true that we seldom eat raw vegetables at home, but the soup has such a nice taste that I believe we will start doing it more regularly. Amina Bokhari is a mother of two and a blogger.
