I made the best millet and I ate wayyyy too much.
I diddled around with the amounts of water (kept opening the pot and adding more water) but when it finally got cooked I added a bit of shredded sheep cheese (to be compliant, gatherers, use ricotta) and chopped garlic and plenty of ghee and salt and cayenne.....it was like polenta! Yum.

I got some Millet yesterday from a bin with no instructions on how to cook.  Anybody?  Maybe two parts water to one part millet?

hmmm, sounds like something I may try. Never even thought about millet in the past but the polenta and faux corn bread, who could say no to that.

funkymuse I'm hoping someone will let us know how much water

After rinsing, add one part millet to two and a half parts boiling water or broth.

Millet info. Enjoy!

if you soak it the night before, it takes a shorter time to cook and thus needs less water, too.

How long do you cook it then, Lola?  I soaked it and cooked it like brown rice. I think I cooked it too long, though it was really good as a base for curried veggies anyway.

Millet contains goitrogens, naturally-occurring substances in certain foods that can interfere with the functioning of the thyroid gland. Individuals with already existing and untreated thyroid problems may want to avoid millet for this reason.
Darn.  My wife has thyroid issues.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.
