Millet is one of the most important foods in Africa and Asia. Millet is naturally gluten-free, high in carbohydrates and a good substitute for rice, for example. Use about 75 grams per person and add 2.5 times the amount of water. Cook for 20 minutes for soft millet, cook for 25 to 30 minutes for soft millet. Let the millet simmer for 10 minutes after cooking. Tip: roasting millet instead of cooking creates a delicious nutty taste!
