Millet is a nutritious, versatile African grain. Its nutty flavor makes a delightful main-dish dinner grain, though here its sweet, light personality is a welcome treat in the morning. Serve it with herbal tea or a roasted chicory beverage.
1. Heat oil in a heavy saucepan. Add millet. Cook, stirring, for a couple of minutes to lightly toast the millet. Add water, fruit, and spices, and bring to a boil.
2. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 20 to 30 minutes, until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and stir in almond extract.
3. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, or brown sugar, honey, or maple syrup.
