Instructions

  1. Pour 1 1/2 cups millet into a dry pan. Toast for about 2 to 3 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  2. 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.
  3. Fluff the millet with a fork, and add some salt to taste.
  4. To serve as a side, add a bit of olive oil or butter, and herbs or spices as desired.
