Notes

Millet Fried “Rice” / Serves 4

Millet Fried Rice includes eggs and is more like traditional fried rice. With a side of stir-fried greens this makes a light and healthy complete meal.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil, plus more for oiling egg pan
  • 2 organic, free-range eggs
  • 3 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 5 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 cup diced leek, white part only
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 2 cups cooked, cold millet
  • 1 tablespoon good quality coconut aminos
  • 1 green onions, sliced on diagonal
  • 1 tomato, chopped

Directions:

  1. Lightly oil a 10-inch fry pan on medium-low. Break the eggs into the pan and allow them to cook until the whites are firm and whites on the bottom are still jelly-like over the yolk. Using a spatula, flip the eggs and cook for 30-45 more seconds. Remove the fried eggs from the pan and set aside.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large wok (or skillet) over medium-high heat; add the ginger and garlic and sauté briefly, about 30 seconds. Add the leeks and carrots and sauté 2 minutes. Add the millet; stir-fry until slightly colored, about 4 minutes. Add soy sauce and cook 2 minutes. Place fried eggs on top of millet. Scatter green onion and chopped tomato on top. Drizzle with a smidgen of sesame oil and a little more soy sauce. Serve warm.
