Millet with Veggies and Black Beans!

Posted Jan 24 2011 7:44pm
So here is what was on tonights menu...I am sorry for the lack of a clever name but really I just lack wit sometimes.  But the recipe will taste the same and that's all that matters :-) Hope you like it, we sure did!

1 cup millet
3 cups water
1/2 head of cauliflower (spears)                                                                    
2 large carrots or 3 small(chopped                                          
1 med. onion, chopped
3 large handfuls of fresh spinach
1/2 can black beans
1 tbsp. earth balance butter
2 tbsp. roasted garlic mustard (stonewall kitchen)
salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot put in millet, water, cauliflower spears and carrots. Bring to a boil.  Once boiling cover pot and simmer for 25 minutes.  Meanwhile, saute onions in oil of choice on med. to low heat and let them get nice and translucent (can also caramelize if you wish) then add spinach.  Once onions and spinach are done turn off heat.  Your millet mix should be done by this time. Using a potato masher, mash together millet,cauliflower, and carrots. Once well combined and mixed, add your onion and spinach mixture.  Next, add black beans, earth balance and roasted garlic mustard and mix with a big spoon.  Then to finish it off add salt and pepper to taste. I also like to add a little bit of parsley (because I love parsley!)  Your millet should be almost creamy looking! and I think delicious tasting!

The finished product!
