Ingredients

  • 1

    cup hulled (pearled) millet

  • 2-3

    cups broccoli florets

  • 3/4

    cup plus 1/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped

  • 1

    packed cup flat leaf parsley

  • 2/3

    cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1

    tablespoon lemon juice

  • 2/3

    cup finely grated parmesan

  • 2

    cloves garlic

  • fine ground sea salt

Directions

Place a heavy-bottomed saucepan with a lid over high heat. Place 1 cup of millet into the pot and stir constantly for 2-3 minutes until it smells deliciously toasty and cashew-like. Be sure the millet doesn’t brown. Carefully add 2 cups boiling water and ½ teaspoon salt. Return to a boil, then reduce the heat and cover the pot. Simmer until all the liquid has been absorbed, 20-25 minutes. Turn off heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff immediately with a fork. Set aside. To cook the broccoli, bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and add a couple big pinches of sea salt. Add the broccoli and cook for about 30 seconds – just long enough for the color to change to bright green. Quickly drain and run under cold water for 20 seconds to stop it cooking further. In a food processor, combine ¾ cup walnuts, parsley, olive oil, lemon juice, Parmesan, garlic, and a big pinch of sea salt. Process until well combined. Taste and adjust salt or lemon juice as you desire. Toss the millet with cooked broccoli and ¾ of the pesto. Taste and add more pesto if you think it needs it. Top with remaining walnuts. Optional toppings: - sliced avocado - crumbled feta - lightly toasted karengo fronds, dulse, or bite size pieces of Nori
