What is Millet?

Millet is small, round and comes in a variety of colours from white to grey to yellow to red. It is technically a seed but is usually classified as a whole grain.

How To Cook Millet

Like all grains, before cooking millet rinse it thoroughly.

Then add one-part millet to two and a half parts boiling water or broth and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat, cover and simmer for about 25 minutes. The texture of millet cooked this way will be fluffy like rice. If you want the millet to have a creamier consistency, stir it frequently adding a little water every now and then.

Cooked millet makes an interesting breakfast porridge with nuts or fruit. Or try grinding the millet and adding to bread or muffin recipes. Try using it in place of rice or quinoa alongside vegetable stir-fries and savoury pilafs.

Delicious and a Breakfast Staple

I've only just started eating Millets and so far used as a breakfst porridge and in stews. As a breakfast I find it very hearty and creamier than oats - it's like eating rice pudding for breakfast which is something I'm definitely up for! For ease I cook it in a pressure cooker, 1 part Millet - 3 parts water - 1 part plant milk (homemade soya milk is lovely). Cook for 15 mins with natural release. Then top with a dash more plant milk, and seeds also purchased from ZWBF. Not sure what type of Millet it is but it's delicious.

Thanks for sharing your recipe, Kathryn. This millet variety is Panicum miliaceum which also goes by the names: proso millet, broomcorn millet, common millet, hog millet, Kashfi millet, red millet, and white millet!

Versatile sustainable staple

Millet is one of the staple grains we use in our cooking - it's gluten free, rich in minerals and very sustainable as it requires very little water to grow. We have even ground it in our blender to make flour for pancakes.

The quality of the product we order from Mitch has always been top quality, and the large quantities we can order also makes it very economical. We have also noticed that as millet is less heavily traded on the global commodity markets unlike wheat, prices have not shot up like other items that are captive to the global markets.
