Briarpatch Co-op Cooking Classes: Let’s Steam-Cook Whole Grain Millet with Simin Grimm

Come and learn how to cook your favorite gluten-free grains in a whole new way! In this class we will steam-cook three dishes with millet, and you’ll see that it isn’t just for the birds! First, we’ll steam-cook millet into a perfect pilaf that can be used for a delicious hot breakfast cereal for cool mornings or for a fabulous salad and side dish with the simple addition of herbs and spices. Then we’ll prepare two very different main dishes using this same golden grain: one with lentils and the other with fresh green beans. These are not your typical “rice and beans”! Easy to prep, they will soon become your favorite hearty winter meal. Vegan, gluten-free.
