Directions

To cook the millet:

Millet cooks a little like rice, though it does take a little longer.
  • Use one cupful per person.
  • Pour the dry millet into a saucepan and turn up the heat.
  • Toast until slightly browned and you can smell the aroma. (10 minutes).
  • Cover with boiling water so that the water is 2 inches above the level of the millet.
  • Place a lid over the saucepan.
  • Simmer until the water is no longer visible (10-15 minutes).
  • Turn the heat down to a minimum and leave to steam for 5-10 minutes.

To cook the stir-fry:

If you do not have a wok, use a frying pan. It's more or less the same!
  • Chop the baby carrots and boil in a saucepan (20 minutes).
  • Add a small knob of coconut oil to a heated wok.
  • Chop the onions, garlic and ginger and fry in the wok.
  • Add a little water and soy sauce.
  • Chop the mushrooms and add to the wok.
  • Add the sesame seeds, 5 spice and honey, with a little more water.
  • Add the carrots once boiled.
  • Season with the toasted sesame oil.
  • Add chilli flakes to taste.
  • Cook and reduce for 10 minutes.
