Quinoa & Millet Pilaf
Millet has become one of my favorite new foods. You’ve probably noticed that I use millet flour frequently in baked goods. I also like whole millet. It’s a grain just like rice and quinoa and is cooked in the same way. For this recipe I combined equal amounts of quinoa and millet and cooked them together. The millet turned out a little firmer than the quinoa, but it was cooked.
I cook my grains in the pressure cooker, because it is so easy that way. I only need 1 1/2 cup water or broth for 1 cup of grain and I cook it for 5 minutes under high pressure. When using the traditional method to cook them, follow directions on the package. The millet will require a longer cooking time so you could probably put in the total amount of water needed for the quinoa and millet, start the millet cooking, then add the quinoa about half way through.
If you’re wondering about the delicious looking fish in the photo, that is Heather’s Parmesan tilapia recipe.
