Sunshine Millet Porridge with Apricots and Carrots

Millet’s versatility is on display here — just prepare it with liquid and it becomes a soft breakfast cereal. The sunny yellow grains drink up sweet apple juice and commingle with apricots and carrot shreds, giving the porridge a natural sweetness. Taste it before you start sprinkling sugar over the bowl — you may find that you don’t need any additional sweetness!

1/2 cup millet
1 1/2 cups water
1 pinch salt
1 cup apple juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup carrots, shredded
1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped

In a 1-quart saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, dry-toast the millet over medium-high heat. When the millet is fragrant and crackles slightly, add the water slowly. When the water boils, reduce heat to low, add salt, and cover. Cook for 25 minutes.



After 25 minutes, stir in the apple juice, cinnamon, carrot and apricots, and raise the heat to bring it back to a boil. As soon as it bubbles, reduce the heat to low again. Cover the pot and cook for 10 more minutes.

Uncover the millet and stir, the porridge should be thick and the millet very soft. Serve hot with milk, yogurt, or apricot nectar. Makes 3 cups.
