A gluten-free alternative to couscous and pasta, millet is incredibly easy to make. Here’s how to cook millet in 20 minutes using just three ingredients.
- 1 1/2 cups millet
- 3 cups water
- Kosher salt
- Pour 1 1/2 cups millet into a dry pan. Toast for about 2 to 3 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently.
- Pour in 3 cups water and add a few pinches kosher salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to very low. Cover the pot and simmer for about 17 minutes, until the water has been completely absorbed.
- Fluff the millet with a fork, and add some salt to taste.
- To serve as a side, add a bit of olive oil or butter, and herbs or spices as desired.
