Asian-inspired Vegan Vegetable Millet mash

Updated: Jun 1, 2022

Millet is a gluten-free grain with more protein than wheat, corn or rice. It is also a good source of minerals and B Vitamins. It is super-filling!

What you need for the mash:

  • Millet - 1 cup

  • Vegetable stock: 2-3 cups

  • Vegetables: Bok choy, green beans, carrots, garlic, and broccoli - 1 cup

  • Sesame oil - 1-2 spoons

  • Handful of cashews

  • Seasoning: Salt and pepper (to taste), soy sauce (1 tablespoon), rice vinegar (1 tablespoon) and maple syrup (1 teaspoon, more per taste)

How to prepare:

  • Cook the vegetables in sesame oil.

  • Once they are cooked, toast the millet in the same skillet to bring out its nuttiness

  • Add the spices

  • Pour the vegetable stock, bring to boil

  • Cover, lower the heat and cook for about 10-15 minutes

  • Remove from heat, let it stand. Millet will completely absorb the liquid

  • Serve right away!

I like to serve the millet with a soup. This soup (in the picture) is made with 1 cup of spinach, fistful of yellow moong dal, 1/4 onion (chopped) and 3 cups of vegetable stock, cooked in a soup maker. Seasoned with salt. Splash of milk alternative to make it creamier. Very easy to make!
