Basic Slow Cooker Millet Recipe


Millet can be cooked easily in the slow cooker, and makes a great breakfast cereal topped with brown sugar and milk. Itís a great change from oatmeal, too. It is also a great side dish to serve at dinner with butter instead of potatoes, rice, or pasta. Millet is very good for you; it contains lots of fiber, almost no fat, no cholesterol, and protein and iron. Because it tastes good, itís a perfect way to introduce healthy grains into the family diet. No one will guess they are eating healthy.
ĒĒ
Basic Slow Cooker Millet takes less than 5 minutes hands-on time, so itís easy. Although it can be cooked on the stovetop in 35-40 minutes, someone has to be near the stove to stir occasionally. When done in the slow cooker, it takes about 2 hours, but can be done while no oneís home. The easiest way is to cook it in a programmable slow cooker, but a timer works well too, and both will start the cooking when itís convenient. Inexpensive timers are available at most discount stores.

Even the busiest cooks can serve this delicious grain for breakfast, since it takes almost no time to prepare. Why not tomorrow morning?
