Looking for a healthier version of a comfort dish? The Ancient Grain Millet is perfect to use in place of any simple carbohydrate (white rice, bread or pasta). Millet will take on the flavors that you add. Try out this B.Komplete Savory Millet Stuffing recipe:

Makes 6-8 Servings

Cook Time: ~30 minutes

Ingredients
  • 1 TBSP Buttery Spread (Smart Balance)
  • 1/2 Medium White Onion, Diced
  • 1 Medium Sweet Bell Pepper, Diced
  • 2 Celery Stalks, Diced
  • 2 CUPS Millet, Uncooked
  • 4.4 CUPS Low Sodium Broth (Veg or Chicken)
  • 2 Bay Leaves
Instructions
  1. Combine millet and vegetable broth in a cooking pot, and cook on medium heat until the mixture begins to boil.  Reduce to a simmer, cover, and allow for the liquid to be absorbed. The millet will be ready when it is soft.  Additional water may need to be added if the millet is still crunchy.

  2. Heat a large sauté pan and add butter/oil, onions, celery, and vegan sausage crumbles.  Stir mixture to coat with the butter.  Allow vegetables to lightly brown.  Add the bay leaves and thyme.  Mix in the cooked millet.  Enjoy as an entrée or a side dish.
