Millet with Lemon and Scallions
Serves: 4 to 6
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-mesh sieve under cold running water. Place rinsed millet in a saucepan and add salt and water. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. 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.
