This is the perfect fall. Chilly slipper and wool shawl mornings, and sunny and clear days with summer-like temperatures. I’m liking it, and hope this warm comforting breakfast says fall to you like it does to me.
Turned out to be a great match! Simple, hot, sweet and savoury. The perfect comfort breakfast for chilly mornings as you watch that October sun rise.
In case you’re wondering what millet is, it’s an ancient grain. It almost looks a bit like quinoa, but with a milder and creamier flavour and a soft and fluffy consistency when cooked. It’s a good source of mineral manganese, magnesium and phosphorus. It’s high in protein and can help lower cholesterol, lower blood sugar and improve cardiovascular health.
Millet is great on it’s own, or in muffins and breads. The cooked cereal makes a simple and nourishing breakfast.
