Millet is one of the most delicate of grains and can be prepared in three very distinct ways-it can be popped, toasted and simmered into a fluffy pilaf (as in this recipe) or left untoasted and made into a creamy porridge. It's a great source of plant protein and is gluten-free. We love using it here as the base for tabbouleh in place of the more traditional bulgur wheat.

Ingredients

Directions

Put the millet in a medium saucepan over medium heat and swirl until lightly golden and toasted, 6 to 8 minutes. Pour in 1 1/2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low, cover and simmer until most of the water is absorbed and the millet is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork and cool.

Combine the cooled millet, parsley, cucumbers, tomato, radishes, scallions, lemon juice, oil, 3/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a medium bowl. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
