Millet is a great source of starch, making it a high-energy food, protein, and fiber. It is also rich in nutrients, including copper, manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium. Magnesium is essential for maintaining good heart health, as it lowers blood pressure and reduces the risk of heart attacks. Phosphorus plays an important part in the structure of body cells.
How to cook: Rinse thoroughly under running water and remove any dirt or debris. Add one part millet to two and a half parts boiling water or broth. After the liquid has returned to a 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 more creamy consistency, stir it frequently adding a little water every now and then.
