Sweet Trail Mix Millet Bowl

20 May

Yesterday for breakfast we cooked up some millet! I was very excited because it seems as though I am one of the last people on this planet to try millet!! Okay, okay that’s a huge exaggeration, but seriously, millet is amazing!

But first!  Here are some pictures from artMRKT!!  We were VIP’s on the list last night and it was a blast!  This Pineapple Imposter by Scott Fraser is the cutest!  (:

Sweet Trail Mix Millet Bowl

Serves 2 to 3

Millet (sorry I didn’t measure…)

Water (1 part millet to 3 parts water)

Trail mix (about 1/2 cup) — this trail mix had dried cranberries, raisins, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, peanuts and almonds!  YUM!!

1 single serving packet dark chocolate peanut butter by PB&Co.

Maple syrup, to taste

Directions:

In a medium saucepan cook the millet with the water and bring to a boil, lower the heat and let simmer for about 15 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed and the millet is cooked.

Add in the trail mix and continue stirring over low heat (this will soften and plump up the dried fruit a little).  Portion into two or three bowls and top each with a dollop of dark chocolate peanut butter and maple syrup!  ENJOY!

I was very impressed with the millet.  It was so creamy, yet chewy and it filled me up for a long time!!  I can’t wait to buy more and eat this every day (seriously)!

So the millet bowl filled me up until around 4 when we ate… Chicago style deep-dish vegan pizza.  Holy moley vegan pie!!  This ‘za was from Patxi’s and it was delicious.  Inside was Daiya mozzarella cheese, spinach and onions and on top there was a delicious red sauce with tons of garlic!!  It’s making me hungry just writing this…

Can you believe we get to eat this?!  Like come on that can’t be vegan!!!  OHYESITIS!

After pizza we went to Four Barrel Coffee on Valencia and grabbed an espresso.  This place was so adorable.  We especially liked the bathroom where on the floor it was just a landscape of a majestic deer.  Cutsie!

Today we are going to Berkeley and the excitement is overwhelming… Trust me there will be A LOT of pictures to come!

    Oh, millet’s lovely. I cook it in a rice cooker fairly often. Very nice when you toast it in a little oil first, like a pilaf.

    Your toppings are a little bit overkill for me though! I’d probabably stick to homemade trail mix or almonds/cranberries/blueberries and maybe a dash of syrup with cinnamon.

      Oh in the rice cooker! Easy peezy! Same ratio of water to millet?

      Yeah I like a simple porridge bowl too, but on vacation you’ve got to splurge!! (: thanks for visiting our site!!
