Millet, a tiny round grain, is known as “the queen of grains.” This gluten-free grain is perfect for those with gluten-intolerance, as well as for vegetarians looking for protein-rich foods. Millet is also rich in a variety of nutrients, such as B vitamins, magnesium, manganese and potassium, among others. It has a slightly nutty flavor. You can prepare it in a similar manner as rice or quinoa; simmer the grain in water, cover it and allow it to absorb the water. The result is a fluffy, nutritious grain that you can turn into a side dish or entree.
