Millet Cauliflower Mash
If you like mashed potatoes, you’ll love millet-cauliflower mash. Smother with vegan gravy and enjoy a delicious version of this nutritious little powerhouse of a grain. You’ll also reap the anti-cancer benefits of cruciferous veggies like cauliflower.
1 medium sized head cauliflower, broken into florettes
1 cup millet, rinsed and soaked overnight in 3 1/2 cups of water
1/2 cup minced parsley
1 tablespoon Earth Balance margarine or olive oil
Sea salt and pepper
Place cauliflower in a medium sized pot. Add millet, soaking water and sea salt. Cover pot and bring to boil over medium high flame. Reduce heat to simmer on low 25 minutes, until cauliflower is fork tender and millet is fluffy. Add parsley and Earth Balance margarine or olive oil. Mash coarsely with a potato masher and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with hot gravy.
