  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Total: 25 minutes
  • Servings: 2 (1x), 4 (2x), 6 (3x)
  • Category: Main Dish, Gluten-Free, Step by Step Tutorials
  • Cuisine: Vegan

Ingredients SCALE (1x)

  • 1/2 cup of millet (100 g)
  • 1 1/2 cups of water (375 ml)
  • One tablespoon tamari or soy sauce

Ingredients SCALE (2x)

  • 1 cup of millet (200 g)
  • 3 cups of water (750 ml)
  • Two tablespoon tamari or soy sauce

Ingredients SCALE (3x)

  • 1 1/2 cup of millet (300 g)
  • 4 1/2 cups of water (1125 ml)
  • Three tablespoon tamari or soy sauce

Instructions

  1. Let the millet soak overnight or for at least 4 hours. This step is not essential, but it helps us eliminate phytic acid (which can steal nutrients from our body), makes the millet more digestive and cooks faster.
  2. The next day strain it, wash it well and remove as much water as you can.
  3. Toast the millet in a skillet over high heat, occasionally stirring, until it is lightly browned and begins to release its aroma.
  4. Please put it in a saucepan or pot with the water and when it starts to boil, add the tamari, reduce to medium heat, cover and cook for 10 or 15 minutes (the time may vary depending on the millet you use). All the water has to be consumed and done. I recommend that if you do it for the first time, you add only 1 cup of water (250 ml), and when it has been consumed, you try it, and then you add the other 1/2 cup (125 ml). Not all millets are the same, and the amount of water and cooking time can also vary depending on what you use for cooking: glass-ceramic, fire or induction.
