Baked Millet

Millet GrainIngredients:
4 cups Water
2 cups Millet
Dulse (dried seaweed), to taste

Preheat oven to 400° F. Bring water to a boil in a 2-quart ovenproof pot or casserole; add millet and dulse. When water returns to a boil, cover and transfer to oven and bake for 1/2 hour. Remove dulse and fluff with a fork before serving.

Makes about 7 cups

If you want a “nuttier” flavor, toast the millet in a dry skillet or on a sheet pan in the oven, stirring often to avoid burning, before adding to boiling water.
Serve warm topped with steamed, baked or grilled vegetables.
If using for a dessert or breakfast cereal, omit the dulse. Replace some of the water with apple or orange juice to sweeten. Add raisins, chopped apples and/or chopped dates before transferring to oven. Serve with fresh, lightly toasted, shredded coconut.
