  • 1 cup millet
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Add all ingredients to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
    Cover, turn heat to low, cook for about 15 minutes.
    I like to separate my grains once they have cooked, so it doesn't turn to mush. If you want to do this, spread in a thin layer on plate or pan. Allow to cool.
    You can use the millet right away or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
    Now, sit back and enjoy this grain however you choose!
