  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup water

Vegetables

  • 4 shiitake mushrooms (2 ounces), sliced 1/4 inch thick

  3. In a small bowl, whisk
    together oil and vinegar to

    I LOVE this recipe. So yummy. I cooked my millet differently first by pan toasting it THEN adding the water, boiling then simmering. I made batch of this, put it in mason jars and grab one in the morning to go for lunch. By lunch time it is room temp and just perfect. No reheating necessary. Thank you Whole Living!!

    This recipe is so good that I've actually made it several times since we finished the detox! Great, fresh, clean flavors and loads of nutrients.
