MILLET – NUTRITION AND BENEFITS

Millet is an ancient cereal grain that has gained popularity for its high nutritional content:

  • It is rich in antioxidants, protein, and dietary fiber, both soluble and insoluble.
  • This diabetic-friendly grain is lower on the glycemic index (GI) than many other grains.  It raises the blood sugar slowly and gradually instead of in quick spikes.
  • It is naturally gluten-free, so it’s an excellent choice for people who have celiac disease or follow a gluten-free diet.
POTENTIAL DOWNSIDES

However, despite multiple health benefits it offers, millet also contains antinutrients — certain compounds that block or reduce the body’s absorption of other nutrients and it can sometimes affect thyroid function.

Soaking and sprouting may help reduce its antinutrient levels. It’s best to soak millet overnight in slightly warm water with a teaspoon of lemon juice. Before cooking rinse it well.

HOW TO MAKE IT

You can find a complete list of ingredients with exact amounts and instructions in the recipe card below.

Millet coconut pudding

  • Once the millet has been soaked, rinse it well, and let it drain thoroughly. Put it in a small pan or a medium pot with 300 ml rice milk.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for approx. 15 minutes. Remove from heat. If there is any liquid left, drain it well and let it cool down completely.
  • Put cooked millet, coconut cream, agave or maple syrup, shredded coconut, and approx. 100 ml rice milk into a high-speed blender and blend until creamy.
  • If consistency is too thick to your liking, you can add a little bit of extra almond or rice milk until you reach the desired consistency. Adjust sweetness accordingly.

Note: The millet coconut pudding will thicken as it cools, so add an extra splash of milk if needed to loosen it up a bit.

Blueberry compote

  • Stir all the ingredients together in a saucepan and cook over low to medium heat for about 5 minutes until the blueberries are softened and the mixture thickens slightly.
  • Remove from heat and let cool until lukewarm.

Serving suggestion

  • Serve millet coconut porridge in a bowl and top with blueberry compote.
  • Garnish with fresh blueberries.
