Millet is a staple grain in Africa. In Ethiopia, the black millet is only used to make local beer, the red is prepared as pita bread, and the white millet is mainly for Injera—soft, fluffy sourdough bread. Use millet as a main dish with vegetables, beans, and miso soup, or as a breakfast grain. The cauliflower is a substitute for the texture and taste of the potato.
1 cup millet, clean
2 cups cauliflower, cut into bite-size pieces
3–4 cups spring or purified water
Pinch of sea salt
Sesame seeds, slightly toasted
PREPARATION: Clean 1 cup of millet and add 3 to 4 cups of spring water. Briefly heat. Add a few drops of rice vinegar and soak overnight. The next day, discard soaking water and replace it with 3 to 4 cups of spring water. Then place the millet, cauliflower, water, and a pinch of salt in a pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for about 30 minutes. Remove and serve with toasted sesame seeds as garnish.
Variation: Roast the millet for a nutty flavor, or pressure cook the dish. Add garlic or onions to taste.
