An Edible Pot of Gold

milletWarm, nourishing, and slightly sweet, this dish could very well be the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

This recipe was adapted from the Body Ecology Diet book.  The key ingredients are millet- one of the most alkalinizing grains, sweet golden roots and squashes – powerful antioxidants, and coconut oil – healthy fat.

Ingredients:
serves 2-4

  • 1 cup millet
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 3-5 carrots, diced*
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tb organic, unrefined coconut oil (ghee or organic butter works too)
  • optional: thyme, rosemary, sage to taste

Method:

  1. If you have the time, soak millet for 8-24 hours.  At the very least, rinse your millet.
  2. In a large pot add millet, water, onion, carrots, and salt.
  3. Bring water to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer.  Cook until all water is absorbed.
  4. Fold in coconut oil, and other herbs if desired.
  5. Give thanks for the abundance and eat!

*Any range of sweet vegetables can be used in this recipe.  Try mixing and matching carrots, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, kabocha squash, etc.
