Millet cereal

I just discovered a new grain: millet! Well, I had heard about it, but I finally have eaten it. Since it's a good lactogenic food, I decided to try it. It is supposed to be high in calcium. I found this recipe in my favorite cookbook, Set for Life. The recipe notes that you can soak the millet overnight to make a fluffier cereal. It works great without soaking, too, though.

Millet Cereal

2 c. water
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. millet

Put ingredients into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for 25-30 minutes. Serve with milk and honey or brown sugar.

Makes: 2 servings
