Ok, I know I owe you guys lots of recipes. I have tons waiting, I just need to get off my lazy butt and write the posts! Last night I made a lemony millet dish inspired by a pin I saw on Pinterest. It was delicious!
1 cup millet
1 cup corn (fresh or frozen)
1 cup chickpeas
4 cups chopped spinach
A couple tablespoons of olive oil (I used meyer lemon olive oil)
1-4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon cumin
Pinch of salt and pepper
Pinch of oregano
A couple tablespoons of pine nuts
Bring 2 cups water to a boil, add millet, then reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until all the water is absorbed, about 20 minutes.
In a large pan, add a tablespoon of olive oil and put over medium heat. Add chickpeas and cook for about 5 minutes. Add corn and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Add cumin, salt, and pepper and stir in well. Add the spinach and continue to cook for a couple minutes until spinach wilts.
Move cooked millet to a large serving bowl. Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice (add 3-4 tablespoons if you are using regular olive oil) and a couple tablespoons of olive oil (I just drizzled some in) and stir. Mix in the chickpea, corn, and spinach and stir well. Add a pinch of oregano and some pine nuts to garnish.
