Vegetable millet

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 teaspoon Sesame oil
½ medium Onion; in 1/2" cubes
1 cup Butternut squash; in 1/2" cubes, or buttercup squash
¼ cup Burdock roots; in 1/4" 1/2 moons --or 1/2 cup cubed celery
1 cup Millet
2½ cup Water
¼ teaspoon Sea salt

Heat oil and briefly saute onion, or omit oil and dry roast millet in cooking pot. Add squash and burdock or celery and stir, then add rinsed millet and stir until it dries out somewhat and releases a nutty aroma. Add water and salt and bring to boil over high heat. Cover, turn to low, and simmer ½ hour. Gently spoon millet and vegetables into serving bowl to fluff the millet without mashing the squash.

NOTES : Millet sets quickly when allowed to cool, so is ideal for making a quick, simple loaf or pie. Simply pat hot millet in lightly oiled loaf or pie pan.
