Millet breakfast - YUM!

This is the easiest, yummiest warm breakfast you can make.

For two people:

1/2 cup millet
1 1/4 cup water
Fresh or frozen strawberries, raspberries or your favorite fruit
Optional: 1 t agave nectar or maple syrup

Bring water to a boil, then turn down to simmer. Cook for 15 minutes covered.

Now, stir and add your frozen fruit - lots of strawberries and raspberries are my favorite! Cook another 5 minutes with no lid. Stir occasionally and until desired consistency. I prefer it with just a little extra juice still in the pot.

Add agave nectar or maple syrup on top, if you prefer your breakfasts extra sweet. I think the fruit sweetens the millet just enough!

If you're tired of mushy oatmeal, try millet! It's very much like Irish Oatmeal (steel cut) - but ideal for anyone gluten-intolerant. Though trust me.. it's fantastic whether you're gluten-sensitive or not.
