Ingredients

Instructions

  • First, wash and rinse your millet a couple of times using a sieve to get rid of any hulls that later can cause a bitter after-taste.
  • For creamy millet porridge, dry up your millet in a towel and grind it in a food processor or in the chopping bowl of a hand blender. See video for more visual. 
  • Take a saucepan and add millet and dairy-free milk. Bring to boil and cook them over medium heat until most of the milk is absorbed. It will take approximately 15 minutes.
  • When almost all of the milk is absorbed by millet, reduce heat and add blueberries and cane sugar. Stir and simmer for 5 minutes until creamy.  
  • The millet porridge is ready now. Add your favorite topping. Mine are: lots of additional blueberries, chia seeds, and sliced almond. Yum! Enjoy!

Notes

Tips for millet
  • You don't need to grind them. If you prefer to have a whole grain millet breakfast, then after washing and rinsing continue with the recipe as described.
Tips for blueberries
  • I used frozen blueberries, but this porridge is - of course - even better with fresh ones. You don't need to thaw the frozen blueberries as the millet porridge is hot enough to deal with them right out of the freezer.
