This is really easy. I put it on first thing when I get up and by the time diapers are changed and kids dressed, it's ready. Millet is a good source of protein and iron.
1 cup millet
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground almonds or sesame seeds (opt.)
5 cups water
Place all ingredients in pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered 30 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
These taste like cream of wheat but even better . . .
Creamy Rice, Barley, Quinoa, or Millet Cereal
In dry skillet over medium heat, toast 1 to 2 cups brown rice, barley, quinoa, or millet for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Grains should begin to pop. Cool completely. Store in covered jar if not using immediately.
To serve: Grind desired amount of toasted grain to fine powder in seed grinder or blender (about 1/4 cup per serving). Whisk together 1 part cereal powder and 4 parts water. Bring to a boil, and simmer uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes, or until soft and smooth. Add more water if necessary as it cooks if it is not soft yet.
