Millet is another gluten-free grain that is often overlooked. It’s been around for centuries, but not until recently has it started to gain popularity as a nutritious but also gluten-free alternative to wheat. This tasty salad goes perfectly with my Mushroom, Broccoli and Coconut Curry, or with salmon.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 medium beetroots, peeled and cut into chunks
1 head broccoli, cut into florets
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
2 tablespoons tamari
1 teaspoon ground cumin
200g tinned black beans, drained and rinsed
480ml vegetable stock
200g millet
35g pumpkin or sunflower seeds
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

For the dressing

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons tamari
1 tablespoon tahini
1 tablespoon raw honey
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
squeeze lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground cumin

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Put the beetroots and broccoli on a baking tray and coat with the melted coconut oil, tamari and cumin. Add some salt and black pepper to taste, then roast in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  2. Remove the tray from the oven, add the black beans and return to the oven for another 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, bring the vegetable stock to the boil, then add the millet. Bring back to the boil, reduce the heat to low and cover and simmer for 25–30 minutes until the water has been absorbed and the millet is tender.
  4. Transfer the cooked millet to a large bowl and mix in the roasted broccoli, beetroot and black beans.
  5. Combine all the dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Coat the salad with the dressing and top with pumpkin or sunflower seeds.

Note

  • Not only is millet alkaline and easily digestible, but it contains seratonin, which helps your mood.
