Recipe Notes

Fun ways to serve millet for breakfast:

  1. With fruit smoothie, fresh or canned fruit, and granola.
  2. With onion, salt, and scrambled tofu.
  3. With soy yogurt, dates, raisins and shredded coconut.

The sky is the limit! Use leftover millet while it’s still hot and fresh to make cheesecake, mayonnaise, soup, gravy, dressing, crackers, millet patties, or even pudding! Or put it in the refrigerator and resurrect it the next day by warming it up with soy milk. There’s no end to uses for millet! Or slice the cold millet and sprinkle seasonings and heat it for another day.
