-1 small sweet potato
-1 large or a few small beet(s)
-2 medium carrots
-2 tbsp olive oil
-2 tbsp tamari
-1 clove minced garlic
-cayenne pepper flakes to taste
-1 cup millet
-1 3" piece of kombu
-1 tbsp sesame seeds, cashews or nut/seed of choice (optional)
*Note: Any of the above veggies can be substituted for other root veggies. Good alternatives are turnip, parsnips or squash!
While the veggies are roasting, combine the millet with 3 cups of water and strip of kombu in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, simmer, and cover. Cook until water is absorbed, approximately 20 minutes.
Serve the veggies on top of the millet, adding more tamari as desired. Sprinkle with nuts, if using. (Seeds or nuts can be dry roasted before adding, as well.)
Makes 4-5 servings.
