Have you ever cooked with Millet? It is a grain. According to NOURISHING TRADITIONS millet does not need to be 'soaked' like most seeds as they contain very little phytates. Phytic Acid is in all grains and long story short contributes to our being unable to digest most grains. This is where soaking beans started way back when..do you even remember why you soak beans when you cook them? Any whoo, you don't have to soak millet but it needs a good 2 hour cooking. Especially if you can cook it in gelatinous broth. I am experimenting with soaking grains before I eat them and using more non-wheat grains, especially millet. Also, especially non gluten containing grains. I guess you can make millet flour and I am going to buy a huge bag someday and grind some and use for muffins etc...very excited!
I will keep you updated but if you are tired of the same old noodles and want to be done with white noodles... I threw this together very quickly and we all loved it. There is no 'amount' so just throw it in cooks...
I had leftover potatoes
bag of frozen broccoli
couple handfuls of millet
rest of a box of organic chicken broth
package of chicken saugage
salt, pepper, whatever else sounds good in it...
oh was it good...mmmm
Well, I guess I should get something else done around here today...
