For those of you making the transition to more of a plant-based diet, I encourage you to read Larry's article "For My Heart: A Personal Perspective on Eating a Plant-Based Diet."
1 cup Millet (rinse)
4 medium Oranges
1/2 cup Cashews
zest of 1 Orange (above)
1 tablespoon of Agave Nectar or to taste
Water (see below)
- Juice 3 oranges
- Add water to the juice for a total 2 1/4 cups total liquid
- Put millet in saucepan with liquid
- Cover pan
- Bring to boil, then turn down to simmer, and cook until liquid is gone (about 20-25 minutes). DO NOT STIR
- Turn off, let sit for about 5 minutes, then fluff lightly with a fork
While the millet is cooking, combine:
- The zest of final Orange
- The juice of that Orange
Pilaf can be eaten hot (best) or cold.
[Note: Before I cooked the millet, I dry-toasted the grain for 4 minutes or until slightly golden, on medium heat, for a nuttier flavor. Be very careful not to burn.]
