Millet is a protein-rich nutritional powerhouse.
Millet is a protein-rich nutritional powerhouse that’s equally good as a hot breakfast (combine with chopped apples and a drizzle of maple syrup) or as a glamorous holiday side dish (mix it with caramelized onions and dried cranberries). Like most whole grains, it favors the patient cook — it takes about 40 minutes to cook on the stovetop — but it can be pressure cooked in 10 minutes flat.
