Dig into a fresh and light alternative to traditional risotto.
Warm rice dishes are the perfect go-to this time of year. They’re soothing and pair well with a number of sides, salads, and wines.
While you could use rice here, too, as is traditional for a risotto or pilaf, this simple tasty dish is a nice way to use up millet, a much underrated, nutritious and gluten-free whole grain.
Millet is a staple grain throughout the planet, especially in Asian and African cuisine. It’s nutty, like a good brown rice but cooks up in less time. Millet doesn’t have the “independence” of rice and can smoosh together quite a bit. But that’s exactly what you want in a dish like this, so let it do it’s thing.
Both millet and peas provide useful sources of protein and iron and the nuts add fat and more protein. Enjoy![amd-zlrecipe-recipe:29]
