Almond Millet Porridge
Millet is a gluten-free grain with a toasted corn flavour. It is a good alternative to oats and is a rich source of iron. Also has a high protein content.
Cooking time: 20 minutes
1 cup millet, rinsed and drained
3 cups water
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
Maple syrup (optional)
Place millet in a small saucepan on low heat and dry-toast lightly.
Add water & salt.
Bring to a boil and cook for about 15 minutes until the grain has puffed up.
Reduce heat to low, add the cinnamon and almond milk and simmer for a few minutes until heated through.
Pour in a bowl and top with any fresh fruit you have, some raisins and if you can't do without, drizzle with a little bit of maple syrup.
