Millet “Churro” Bowl

The second ingredient purchase of my February Grocery Challenge was…Millet [MILL-et]!

“But why?”

  • Whole grain!
  • Gluten-Free!!
  • 6 grams protein per 1-cup cooked serving!!!
  • Can transition from breakfast to dinner!!!!

“You’re joking me.”

This being my first experience with Millet, I thought, “let’s start at the very beginning a very good place to start” with our first meal of the day: Breakfast.  Thus, the Millet “Churro” Bowl was born!

Millet “Churro” Bowl

The critics (Ian) rave,

Mmm, this tastes like a Churro Bowl!

Millet “Churro” Bowl:

Servings: 1

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup Millet
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened dairy-free milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (essential for the “churro” claim)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch o’salt
  • 1 Tablespoon raisins (plus more for heart shape topping)
  • 1 Tablespoon Goji berries (plus more for topping.  If you don’t have or can’t find Goji berries, don’t fret, just add more raisins or other dried fruit you love!)
  • Maple syrup or other sweetener (honey, agave are other great options)
  • sliced almonds, shredded coconut, etc. as additional (optional) toppings.

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients (except for maple syrup and extra toppings) in a pot.  Bring to a boil (caution: keep an eye on it — mine boiled over!)
  2. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes.  If it is still liquidy, let simmer for a few extra minutes.
  3. Top with a drizzle of maple syrup and any additional toppings you crave.
  4. Eat  Devour immediately.

Don’t you think this would make a fantastic breakfast in bed for that special someone this valentines day?  I “churro” do!
