Broccoli, Edamame & Cabbage Millet Salad
Trying to eat more whole grains? Try millet--a gluten-free ancient grain with a slight corn flavor. In this grain-salad recipe, the millet is tossed with a white-wine vinaigrette, green veggies and apricots. Serve with grilled chicken, fish or tofu.
Tips: To make 3 cups cooked millet: Bring 1 cup millet and 2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer; cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook until tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand for 10 minutes.
