These Millet recipes will tasty not only on Thanksgiving
Try these recipes on Thanksgiving. Millet is one of the oldest foods in modern times. This gluten-free grain has been used for healthy nutrition for 10,000 years.
Millet is very versatile; on the one hand, you can prepare it like risotto; millet is also suitable for savory and sweet ways of preparing it.
Even with slight intolerance to cereals, we should quickly switch to gluten-free foods because once the intestine is attacked, this also means a lack of vitamins and minerals because the intestinal mucous membrane can no longer absorb them. This is how you can stop or prevent the onset of celiac disease. Gluten is in most of the grains we prefer.
On the other hand, millet is particularly suitable for replenishing the stores of various minerals such as magnesium, silicon, potassium, iron, fluorine, sulfur, and phosphorus because the content is considerable. The B vitamins (B1, B2, B6, and B17) are also not neglected, which are rarely found in plant-based foods. It is, therefore, ideal for a vegan or vegetarian diet.
Millet used to be a remedy because it helps against deficiency symptoms and works well as a free radical scavenger.
Also, Millet is base-forming and not acid-forming, ensuring less mucus formation in the body. And Millet porridge is particularly recommended during the cold season in autumn and winter.

If you’re new to millet, don’t let that stop you. It’s easy to use, a wonderful gluten-free grain that’s fairly easy to digest and contains a good amount of fiber and protein.
Vegan Millet Risotto To make the mushroom risotto vegan-friendly, you simply need to replace the cheese with a vegan option. I like to use nutritional yeast flakes. Use 1/4 cup nutritional yeast as a substitute for 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
This millet sushi with roasted root veggies and broccoli cream is really something different. Millet has a very similar texture to rice but is more light and fluffy. Roasted veggies are baked to perfection and taste mildly sweet.

This Thanksgiving, you might consider serving this vegetarian stuffed butternut squash instead. This makes a super-satisfying vegetarian meal for when you want to fuss a bit.

This kind of holiday dish makes it easy for people with different eating styles–vegan, Omni, gluten-free, and everything in between–to share the same meal at the same table without any sense of sacrifice. It’s such a keeper. My next challenge will be to try it with homemade vegan cornbread–maybe that can be next year’s holiday offering!

Cook the millet with almond milk and serve it with cranberries, apples, and quinces, sweeten with coconut sugar. If you like you could also sub the coconut sugar with agave or brown sugar.
