Breakfast MilletMeal

This recipe was shared with us by Matthias V and is a wonderful alternative to more traditional oatmeal. It’s easy, looks beautiful, and tastes amazing.

For the base, add millet and amaranth to boiling water in saucepan on stove. milletmeal1

When the water has evaporated, turn off burner. Add milk, cinnamon, and vanilla. Get creative here if you want – try adding a pinch of nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice.

Let the pan sit on the hot stove (or simmer if you have a gas stove) for 5-10 minutes as the milk soaks into the grain.

While that sits, chop up fruit and nuts of your choice. We recommend almonds with blueberries, strawberries, banana, and apple.
