Recipe 1: Anna Getty’s Breakfast Porridge


1/2 c. millet

2 1/2 c. water

2 TBSP grated ginger

2-3 TBSP honey or maple syrup

4 TBSP raisins

3 TBSP chopped walnuts


Put millet, water and ginger in a pot and bring to a boil. Then simmer 25-30 minutes, remove from heat, let stand uncovered for 5 minutes and then fluff with fork. Put millet in a bowl and stir in honey, raisins, and walnuts – or skip the raisins and honey and add ghee instead for Southern grits. Better than oats! Yields 2 servings.


Recipe 2: Baked Millet with Berries


1 c. millet, 3 c. water

1 apple

1 c. fresh blueberries or raspberries (use frozen organic berries if necessary)

2 TBSP maple syrup or honey


Boil millet, water and chopped apple for 20 minutes or until water is absorbed (add enough water to achieve a mushy consistency). Spread in baking dish and cover with berries and maple syrup. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Yield 6 servings.
