Millet with Sweet Vegetables and Corn
I love this soft whole grain dish in the morning. It's incredibly nourishing and relaxing so we can take on the day's stress in a calm, graceful way.
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 cup minced winter squash
1/4 cup minced carrot
1/2 cup corn kernels
1 cup yellow millet, rinsed well
3-4 cups spring or filtered water
pinch sea salt
small handful pumpkin seeds, pan toasted, for garnish
Layer onion, squash, carrot, corn and then millet in a heavy pot. Gently add water, cover and bring to a boil over medium heat. Add salt, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until all liquid has been absorbed into millet and grain has become creamy, about 25-30 minutes. Stir gently to combine ingredients and transfer to a serving bowl. Serve immediately, garnished with freshly toasted pumpkin seeds.
