Millet with Lemon and Scallions
Serves: 4 to 6
Rita says: You may have used millet as bird feed, but it's a great food for people, too! It's a terrific source of protein, it cooks in 20 to 25 minutes and it's quite versatile. You can replace the water with vegetable or chicken stock for added flavor.
Try adding cooked millet to soups for a protein boost!
Rinse millet in a fine meshed sieve under cold running water. Place millet in a pan and add salt and water. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook for approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Add the lemon zest and juice, mix together.
Season with salt to taste. Serve with finely chopped scallions sprinkled over the top.
