THE CEREAL THAT IS OLDER THAN THE BIBLE

Have you ever heard about millet? In the middle of the hypotheses, yes, no and maybe, I am almost sure that yes is the answer with the lowest percentage. But you have nothing to fear, because after reading this post, which obviously comes with a delicious recipe, you will definitely know this millet better!

 

Millet is nothing more than a cereal, such as rice, oats, barley, corn, etc … What happens is that behind its small, spherical and delicate appearance, it hides a huge amount of incredible things to offer to us.

 

This cereal is considered ancestral, which means, one of the oldest cereals in the world, mentioned even in the Bible, the millet is believed to have originated in the North of Africa, more specifically in Ethiopia, where it has been consumed since prehistory.

 

Millet is widely used in macrobiotic cuisine as it is one of the most alkaline cereals in the world. Naturally gluten-free, rich in protein, the millet contains more amino acids than most cereals, and guess what, is the cereal with the highest amount of calcium of all, providing 13% of the recommended daily dose with just 100gr of cooked millet! WOW!

 

As it is a cereal with a low glycemic index, it is also considered ideal for consumption by people with diabetes.

 

With a neutral and soft flavor, it is super versatile and can be used for both savory and sweet recipes. To cook it, just put 1 cup of millet with 2 cups of water in a pan, let it boil until the water completely evaporates, and you are done. Nothing too weird, right?

 

Now that I’ve introduced you the millet, it’s time to reveal what recipe I bring to you. Millet porridge! I decided to bring something very simple to start your adventure with this cereal without any problems.

THIS RECIPE IS:

EASY | QUICK | CALCIUM RICH | HIGH IN PROTEIN | GLUTEN FREE | SACIANTE

 

As I said to you, making millet porridge is extremely simple!

 

After the millet is cooked, just add all the ingredients into a pan and cook until reaching the desired consistency.

 

In this recipe I added cacao, maca and molasses to give it an ultra chocolaty and sweet taste and make this meal something you will want to eat every day! Of course, you can add whatever you prefer and create your own version of this porridge, making it totally to your taste. The millet is really versatile and it´s easy to give it the flavor we want.

 

Without further ado, let’s jump into the recipe because I’m already looking forward to eating some nice millet porridge again.

GET THE TIPS:

* You can use the vegetable milk you prefer, I always recommend the soy milk because it is the richest in protein. If you find fortified soy milk with calcium and B12 even better. Don’t forget that is your breakfast, the greater the source of nutrients in your first meal of the day, the better.

* You can substitute the cacao powder, the maca and the molasses for any ingredient of your preference. This recipe is also amazing if you add orange zest, for example. Be creative, it will be worth it.
