Morning Millet

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 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup millet
2 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup dried apricots or  dried cranberries
1/2 teaspoon Frontier Organic Ginger Root Powder
1/4 teaspoon Frontier Sea Salt
1/8 teaspoon Frontier Organic Nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon Frontier Organic Almond Extract
 cinnamon sugar* (optional)
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.
