“Hannah, isn’t millet for birds?” you say.

Well, so I thought until a couple of months ago when I realised I can actually buy it in my regular supermarket! I did some Googling and found some recipes but none felt authentic. So I decided to make my own favourite combo lots of onion, mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes. Mmmmmm…



Vegan, gluten-free millet risotto with mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes

Servings: 4     Prep time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 25-30 minutes     Total time: 45-50 minutes

  • 200g / 25 mushrooms
  • 2 large onions
  • Oil of choice or use a very non-stick pan/pot
  • 2 dl / 160g millet
  • 6 dl / 2,5 cups water or stock
  • 1 dl / 1/3 cup+1 tbsp white wine
  • If using water you need one stock cube or stock concentrate

  1. Cut up the mushrooms and onions and saute in a large pot with a little bit of oil until the onion start to turn translucent. Add the millet, sun-dried tomatoes, liquids and optionally the stock cubes/concentrate.
