Cooking directions for millet

1cup millet

  1. Put millet in a pot and add the water and salt. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Then simmer for 25-35 minutes.

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan and allow oil to warm up. Add diced onion and cook for 10-20 minutes until clear and almost caramelized, stirring occasionally.  Add the greens and sprinkle with a little salt to help wilt it. Cover with a lid for a couple minutes. Cook the greens long enough for it to wilt about 3-5 minutes. Set aside.  Add Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, eggs, garlic, salt, nutmeg, pepper and chunks of blue cheese to bowl and mix well.  Layer the millet on the bottom of a greased 9 x 12 casserole dish. Pour the greens mixture on top of that. Top with parm cheese.  Bake for 30-40 minutes until top is nice and brown.
