Creamy Millet Porridge With Vanilla and Citrus
Millet is a wonderful grain that is gluten-free and works well as a change to oats for porridge. Im always looking to change it up a little in the mornings and this is a simple and still healthy way to do it!
1 cup hulled millet
1 cup water
1 1/2 cup coconut milk ( Or my favourite is a coconut and almond milk blend)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 -2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
1 mandarin, grapefruit or orange
A handful of berries of your choice - we had these lovely blackberries from the markets!
In a medium saucepan over low heat, place the millet, water, 1 cup of milk and vanilla and simmer, stirring occasionally until the liquid is mostly absorbed - around 10 - 15 minutes. The millet doest get as soft as oats but will be tender.
Mix in the maple syrup to taste.
Serve in 2 bowls, and top with extra milk, half the citrus fruit and berries in each bowl and 1 spoon of sesame seeds each.
