Soft and creamy porridge with a sweetish nutty taste. This is a wonderful variation of the more common oat porridges.
Millet is a gluten-free ingredient that’s an excellent source of iron, magnesium, fibre, and protein.
Dried fruits are a natural sweetener rich in fibre and minerals. Make sure to buy organic dried fruit and read the list of ingredients on the package carefully. Despite their healthy image, they often contain preservatives to prolong their shelf life and preserve their color. They can also be mixed with fats that prevent them from sticking and make them look shiny. Sugar is often added to the fruits as a preservative.
The spices and the nuts add an abundance of taste and health benefits to the porridge, so make sure to include them.
• 1 cup millet
• 4 cups water
• 1 cup coconut milk
• 3 prunes, stoned and chopped
• 2 dates, stoned and chopped
• 2 organic dried apricots, chopped
• 1 apple, diced
• 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
• ¼ tsp cinnamon
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• Pinch sea salt
• Soak the millet in water for 10 minutes, then drain and rinse thoroughly.
• Place the millet and water in a saucepan. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil.
• Reduce the heat, cover the pan, and cook for about 45 minutes until the millet absorbs most of the liquid and becomes tender. If it has not softened, add some more water, and cook for a few more minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning.
• Spoon into serving bowls. Sprinkle with some pistachio nuts and grated orange zest and serve.
• The millet porridge with dried fruit will last for up to 2 days when stored in a closed container in the fridge.
• A cup of cooked millet contains 6g of protein which is equivalent to an egg.
• If you prefer a smoother texture, you may grind the millet grains in a blender before cooking.
