Hot Millet Cereal
This protein-rich breakfast will help you feel fuller longer, and it'll give you plenty of energy for your workout routine.
- 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)
Toast millet in a small skillet over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
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.
