    Vegetable Fried Millet


    Vegetable Fried Millet is a really useful recipe to make midweek as it is very quick, is a good way to use up leftovers and is healthy too! Millet is a grain which can be ground to make flour or can be cooked and eaten in a similar way to how we cook and use quinoa. It has a fluffy texture like steamed rice which makes it perfect for this veggie fried millet dish.

    The ingredients I use in this recipe are suggested ingredients – you can easily substitute broccoli with bok choy or cabbage if you prefer. You can add different ingredients too if you prefer. Sometimes I add chopped red pepper or green beans for variety. If you like spicy food, drizzle with some Asian chilli sauce before serving.

    To make my Vegetable Fried Millet, you will need the following ingredients:

    Stir in 1 chopped onion and 3 chopped garlic cloves and stir well together. Add ½ cup of frozen peas and 2 cups of cooked millet. Stir again.

    Wouldn't recommend it as much as I would recommend the broccoli chedder stuffed potatos but it was alright.

    Too much soy sauce, I recommend only 1 tbsp instead of 3 unless you like putting a spoonfull of salt in your mouth haha.

    Kinda plain and not too filling in my opinion but good for a light meal.

    I didn't add any peas to mine cause peas taste so gross on anything and instead added some chopped sundried tomatos with oil, so good.
