Inadvertent success


I thought this grain was going to go over like the clumpy porridge-y dud it was... but it won rave reviews from the offspring, go figure. I blame Vegan Planet -- for both the failure and inadvertent success, I suppose. They claimed that both brown rice and millet require a ratio of 2:1 grain:water with 30 minutes cooking time. Or not: millet was mushy, rice was crunchy. Ah well. Pretend it's really cous-cous and make jokes about kiss-kisses. Serve with corn on the cob and stir-fried carrots and cabbage.

If I were making this I would have added:

1 cup brown rice
1 cup Millet
4 cups water

My usual recipe is:
1 cup Millet
1 cup Quinoa
4 cups water

**Also I always let my grains sit for 30 minutes after cooking.

Vegan planet was just very wrong..that is not enough water for brown rice :-/

BTW, I sooo love stir-fried cabbage..Did you use raw coconut oil?? If no ..you better go out and buy some and let me know how the family likes their veggies stir-fried in it.

Do I sound like your mother? --the way I say "you better."
