Combine millet and spinach

Combine filling


In a medium bowl, whisk 4 large eggs, ½ cup of whole milk, ½ teaspoon of salt and 2 tablespoons of fresh dill together until combined then pour over the spinach and millet mixture and gently press down to cover.

It took a while longer for me to make this because it was my first time making anything with millet in it, but I liked it a lot.

I used soy milk because I don't drink normal milk and this was just as good, very delicious.

Enjoyed this a lot more than I expected to, I needed a bit more salt for mine but still very good!

This and the gluten free millet salad were both equally delicious, happy with it.

This egg millet with spinach is actually really good, I had mine with some humus on top, just how I like it.
