Breakfast Millet

One of the fun things about making your own oatmeal is experimenting with different grains.  One that I have really come to love is Millet.  Yes, this is the little beads that you will find in bird seed!  Upon cooking, it expands slightly, splits and becomes tender but not mushy.  It will retain a firmer texture.  I decided to go ahead and try cooking some up on it’s own and give it a taste test.  I was actually very happy with the results.  It has a real earthy flavor and I love the texture.  It’s also a great source of fiber and protein.  So if you want to try something new, then this one is for you!
