Millet with Roasted Tomatoes and Chickpeas


This Millet with Roasted Tomatoes and Chickpeas is vegan and gluten free and everything that I personally look for in a healthy, nutritionally balanced and tasty dinner idea for me and my family.

Perfect for four people, I roast onions with red tomatoes and some salt and pepper then toss them with chickpeas that have been marinated in my homemade recipe of olive oil, tamari, apple cider vinegar, cumin, onion powder, coconut sugar and a plant based cream. Combined with millet and fresh herbs and greens, I think it’s really amazing!

One of my favorite vegan millet recipes, could not be more happy.

Amirah Brandeis

Had this for dinner tonight with the hubby and we're both obsessed! I might just become vegan after this delicious millet!

Haleigh Vellanki

Amazing vegan recipe, I never tried anything like it and the flavours are outstanding!

Mavis Vollmann

Very delighted with how this roasted tomato millet came out, my family was inspired by this dish and decided to make it themselves but with some chicken because they aren't vegan.

Shanaya Hussey

Best thing I've ever tried to make, it takes a while but worth it because of the zesty flavors.

Kaya Streyle

Delicious and really well explained, the steps are so easy to follow and you end up with an amazing tasting dish.

I saw this and just knew I had to try it with how tasty everything looks, loved it and so did my husband!

Joelle Zanis

Thanks for sharing this, one of the healthiest meals I've ever made for myself and it was wonderful.

Araya Kacprowicz

45 minutes for the most heavenly dish on either is NOT a lot, recommend trying this if you want to have a party in your mouth and a happy stomach :)

Audree Savich

Not a fan of the chickpeas in this lunch/dinner but it was good.

Saniya Belluomini

I enjoyed this but honestly not as much as the gluten free tabbouleh millet.

Aiyanna Nau

Never heard of a millet with roasted tomatoes before so when I saw this I just knew I had no choice but to try it out for myself, excellent job making this recipe.

Maryjane Jedziniak

Couldn't be happier with this, thanks so much, bookmarked this page.

My kids actually ate the whole thing despite most of it being HEALTHY! They avoid anything with that word like the plague but they gobbled this up in a heartbeat.

Maren Lepre

I'm not a vegan myself but I personally enjoyed this meal and will be making it again for sure.


I love it! Thanks for sharing recipe.
