How To Cook Millet As A Side Dish Or In Salads

Hulled millet is naturally gluten-free with a low glycemic index to keep you feeling fuller longer. It's nutty and wholesome, perfect for side dishes and salads.

Toast the seeds in a dry skillet until you hear a crackly noise, but be careful not to let the grains burn.

Add water or stock to the toasted hulled millet.

It's usually a 2:1 ratio of liquid to hulled millet, but you can use more to make it softer and creamier.

Add a bay leaf or other herbs and spices to season the hulled millet.

Cook for 15-20 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed and then let the millet steam in the pot for an additional 10 minutes. Fluff the grains with a fork.

Serve in place of rice or quinoa or use in whole grain salad recipes.
