Hot Millet Cereal

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, January 2012


  • 1 cup millet
  • 2 cups low-fat milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • Pinch of coarse salt
  • Honey, brown sugar, berries, or dried fruit, for serving (optional)


  1. Toast millet in a small skillet over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  2. In a small saucepan, bring milk to a boil; add toasted millet, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt. Reduce heat to a simmer; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until milk is absorbed, 25 to 30 minutes; add 1/4 cup additional water or milk if liquid is absorbed and millet is not tender. Serve immediately with desired toppings.
