Millet is a grass plant that is widely grown as a cereal crop, originating in Africa and the Indian subcontinent thousands of years ago. This Certified Organic hulled White French millet is Australian grown without the use of synthetic fertilisers or pesticides, has no preservatives and is non-GMO. Millet has a subtle, slightly nutty flavour and can be easily cooked so that it is light and fluffy or until deliciously creamy. Versatile and convenient millet is great for breakfast, baking, desserts and savoury recipes.
How to Use:
Organic Millet can be used whole, or ground to flour, in home-baked bread, cakes and muffins. It can be added directly to soups and hotpots; or pre-cooked for salads, as a side dish in place of rice or to add to sweet and savoury recipes.
Great in steamed puddings, veggie burgers, or stir-fries. Millet can be lightly toasted, in a dry pan over low heat, for extra flavour before cooking – or to sprinkle over salads. To cook, add 1 part hulled millet to 3 parts water or stock and bring to the boil. Simmer, covered for 20-25 minutes, until soft but still separate. Drain well and fluff with a fork.
For a creamy texture to use as a savoury ‘mash’ or warming breakfast porridge; cook as above but stir regularly with a wooden spoon while cooking and add a little extra water if needed. Include seasoning or cinnamon and natural sweetener, as appropriate.
