Default Millet with harissa

This recipe looks pretty interesting and I am definitely going to try it. If you are looking to explore new grains, this certainly seems like a recipe to try. This recipe comes from the Worlds Healthiest foods website (whfoods.org)

Millet with harissa

Prep and Cook Time: Prep and cooking time: 30 minutes


1 cup millet
2 tsp caraway seeds
1 ˝ tsp ground coriander
˝ tsp ground cumin
1 TBS paprika
pinch red chili flakes
1 medium onion, minced
3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
4 medium cloves garlic, pressed
3 TBS chopped parsley
2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
salt and black pepper to taste

Place caraway seeds, coriander, cumin, paprika, red chili flakes in a dry small soup pot and turn heat to medium. Toast spices stirring constantly for about 1-2 minutes. Be careful not to burn.

Add millet and continue to toast stirring constantly for another 1-2 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.

Heat 1 TBS broth in same pan and add onion. Sauté in broth for 3 minutes and add rest of broth. Bring to a boil on high heat. Add millet with spices, cover, and turn heat to low. Cook for about 25 minutes until liquid is absorbed and millet is tender.

Remove from heat and mix in pressed garlic, parsley olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix with a fork to keep millet fluffy.

Serves 4 as side dish
