Millet Breakfast Muesli
1/2 cup cooked Millet
1/2 small RIPE Banana (or vanilla flavored soy milk, to taste)
1/2 apple chopped (I like Fuji, Braeburn or Red Delicous)
1 tablespoon Walnuts, Pecans or Almonds, chopped
Some sweet white grapes, halved (opt.)
Mash the banana till creamy. Add the rest of the ingredients, mix well.
Comments: I like this rather dry, but if you prefer you may add a little soy milk, or water. I never add any vegan sugar to this, it doesn't need it. The taste of the apple is crucial! A bland, mealy apple will ruin the whole taste. Millet cooks in about 20 minutes and is best used for this dish while still warm. Howe'ver, you may cook a larger quantity of millet and quickly freshen a desired portion in the microwave. Day old millet tends to be somewhat dry, so sprinkle with a little water. I like to cook all my grains neutral - that is without salt or broth. That way I can use the left over for either fruit/grain combinations as in this recipe, or in stir fry dishes.
Here is how I cook all my grains, including millet:
I put the desired amount of grain in a saucepan, add cold water to about 1/2 inch above the grain line, bring to boil, stir, cover, turn down heat to simmer gently till done. Millet is done in about 20 minutes. I set my timer to 15 minutes to check if the grain needs a little more water. I never worry about lifting the lid while grain is cooking - I don't think it makes a difference with wholegrains.
I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do!
