Lunch recipe: Millet salad
Millet for lunch. Ever heard of it? Millet is gluten-free and high in protein, vitamin B, magnesium, iron, potassium and copper. It’s very tasty, with a mildly sweet nut flavour. You can have it for lunch and of course also for dinner with some veggies and even for breakfast with fresh fruit and superfoods! For now this is my favourite lunch and I like to share this with you because bread isn’t that healthy and not the right way to lose weight if you want to. No worries, with healthy lunch salads like this one, it won’t be a problem.
To make this yummie lunch you will need:
- 1-2 cups millet
- Onion (chopped)
- 2 cloves garlic
- Ginger root (1 cm)
- 1 egg (boiled)
- Watercress (rocket, lettuce)
- Broccoli sprouts
- 1-2 tbsp olive oil, cold pressed extra virgin
- 1 tsp garam masala, turmeric, vindaloo curry masala
- 1 tbsp raw honey
- Coconut oil ( 1 tbsp)
You boil millet in a few minutes, take 2 cups of water for 1 cup millet. It’s ready when all the water has been absorbed. I like to boil millet in turmeric (1 tspn) and Celtic seasalt. Turmeric is very healthy, so I use it every day, most of the time with black pepper. Next put the chopped onion, garlic and ginger root in the fry pan with coconut oil ( cold pressed extra virgin) and herbs for a few minutes. After that the honey and sultanas ( as much as you like). That sums up to a really fantastic taste, hot spicy and sweet!
Put it all in a large bowl, also the lettuce/rocket, sprouts, egg into pieces, olive oil, and mix it. Ready!
I hope you’ll enjoy this lunch recipe!
Until next time!
