Hi, I'm Kat Barry, and I'm going to teach you how to cook millet. Millet is a great grain to have in your repertoire. It's really easy to cook, it cooks just like quinoa and it's just a nice change up from rice or couscous. Here we go. Okay, so here we go, we're going to cook millet. Millet is an awesome grain. It's an excellent substitute for rice or quinoa or couscous. You use it just like any of those and actually it cooks very much the same way as quinoa cooks. It takes a little bit longer. So that's one cup millet and now I'm going to add two cups of vegetable stock. Now you can use two cups of water and then if I were to do water instead I would use a half of vegetarian bullion cube, okay? So I'm just going to add two cups, whoops, two cups water and we're going to set this to high. We're going to bring it to a boil and we're going to cover it for 15 to 20 minutes, it's really simple. You know, four people, you're going to want to take it up to two cups millet, four cups water, pretty simple. So millet is an excellent grain. It's just a nice change up from rice, quinoa, couscous, any of those things. I use it a lot in salads and soups. So if you are making a soup, you're going to want to throw it in about 20 minutes before your soup is done and just like you know, other grains that you would throw in, you know, if you throw in dried beans or lentils, they do expand. Millet expands and those little tiny grains that you saw are going to actually pop open a little bit. So you're going to want to throw them in and just keep in mind that they do expand in your soup, and you know, they do create a really nice texture in soup. I also use them a ton in salads. Sometimes I throw them in green salads. Sometimes I throw it in the salads you know, a salad that's just like vegetables and beans and all that good stuff. So it's just another grain to have to mix up. I really believe in variety and if you're going to eat grains then you should eat a wide variety of grains. So plus I get kind of bored with just you know rice and I eat tons of quinoa but millet is really nice to mix in with those. So thank you so much for watching this video on how to cook millet. I hope you learned a little bit and maybe you'll try this grain the next time you make a salad or soup.
