Which grain was first farmed nearly 10,000 years ago? Which grain was revered as one of five sacred crops in ancient China? Which grain is mentioned in the Old Testament, the writings of Herodotus, and the journals of Marco Polo? The answer is millet! Create nutritious, gluten-free dishes with millet, an ancient grain from the Far East. Millet has a mild, sweet flavor and quick cooking time, making it a tasty, convenient, whole grain addition to any meal of the day.
Unlike most other grains, this versatile, gluten free grain is alkaline. Millet digests easily and helps balance the body's natural tendency towards acidity. Hulled millet is an excellent source of prebiotic dietary fiber, making it a great solution for those looking to add more fiber to their gluten free diet. Millet has a low impact on blood sugar. Each 1/4 cup of this whole grain contains 15% of the recommended daily value of magnesium.
Enjoy whole grain millet as a unique alternative to rice in salads and stir-fries. Cook millet for a sweet breakfast porridge or add uncooked millet to breads for a crunchy texture. Serve millet with a drizzle of olive oil, and a dash of salt and pepper in place of mashed potatoes for a delightful side that will enhance any meal.
