I consider myself to be something of a culinary adventurer. I like all types of ethnic food (Thai, Indian, Ethiopian, etc.) and I'm always poking around the many local specialty grocery stores for new and different foods. While poking around at the local "MOM's Organic Market" [I'm not big on organics, I was waiting for the REI next door to open] I stumbled into the 'bulk' department. A wall full of plastic bins containing all types of trail mix, grains, beans, and flours. This looked liek the kind of place I might discover something I'd never eaten before. I first noticed they had a killer deal on steal cut oats. Anyone who has been eating rolled (instant) oatmeal is really missing out. Steel cut is really the only way to go when cooking oats. But anyway, a couple bins over I found millet. My first thought was, "Birdseed?!" but my curiosity got the better of me so i picked some up. I just finished cooking and eating some of it for lunch today and all I can say is, "Oh my God! Why are we not all eating this?!". It was delicious. The texture is somewhere between mashed potatoes and grits but maybe a little lighter. I stewed mine in a mini-crock pot for about an hour but I believe it can be cooked much faster by boiling on the stove. I just picked a few things out of the pantry and fridge to invent a recipe. Here is how I cooked them but I looks forwad to exploring this grain further. HR's Chipotle Millet Deliciousness 1/3 cup millet 3/4 cup water 1 chipotle pepper ground (I found some bouillion cubes made of chipotle pepper so I used that) 1/2 tsp fresh garlic a pinch of salt (I left this out becasue the chipotle had salt in it) a pinch of dried chives Cook millet and other ingredients until tender. I used a mini crock pot but the stove should work and be much faster. Once cooked, top with shredded cheddar cheese (the sharper the better) and a spoonful of sour cream. Enjoy! Does anyone else here eat millet? Got recipes or cooking tips for me? It seems to be pretty nutritious too.
