Love Porridge? – Then you’ll love this variation with millet. Creamy or crunchy, it’s up to you! Add dried fruit, nuts and seeds and top off with some maple syrup. What a great alternative to oats for a hot breakfast!
Total Time: 30 min (cooking time: 25 min, preparation time: 5 min)
Yield: 2-4 servings
½ cup millet (grind coarsely for creamier texture)
1½ cups milk or water
pinch of salt, cinnamon, nutmeg
½ tsp untreated lemon peel
dried fruit and nuts you like – for example raisins, cranberries, plums (my favorite!), shredded coconut, pecans, walnuts, macadamia, sunflower seed, pumpkin seed,…
toppings: maple syrup, fresh fruit
2Bring the milk (or water) with salt, spices, and lemon peel to a boil. When it starts boiling, add the millet and turn the heat down. Let boil for 5 minutes.
4 Serve hot and top with maple syrup or fresh fruit.
! Depending on your preference you can add less or more milk. More milk makes the millet creamier and brings a smoother taste to the dish.
! Dried fruit naturally contain lots of sugar, so usually there is no need to add sugar to the milk. However, if you use less fruit, you might want to sweeten the milk or use honey, agave or maple syrup as a topping.
