Garlic and Rosemary Millet Mash

makes 2 servings

I used to think millet was only used for bird feed until I became interested in seeking out different nutritious grains to add into my diet.  I came across whole grain millet in the grocery store and decided to give it a try.  Turns out millet is tasty and extremely versatile.  Millet is gluten-free and a good source of fiber, protein and B vitamins.

  • 1/2 cup whole grain millet
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon each: sea salt and black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dry rosemary
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Wash millet in cold water.  Place millet in a pan with water and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes.  Turn off heat and mash millet with garlic, salt, pepper, and rosemary.  Gradually stir in almond milk until millet is a smooth texture.

BALANCE IT OUT: This side dish would work as a great substitute for regular mashed potatoes.  I enjoyed mine alongside vegetable kabobs and a salad.
