This is a delicious and easy way to incorporate healthy whole grains into dinner. Millet is a good source of iron, B vitamins and calcium. It is gluten free, as is corn, the grain of true polenta. All it takes is water, a little butter, salt, parmesan cheese and heat to transform "birdseed" (what my kids call it) into a perfectly reasonable companion for roast chicken and just about any sort of salad.
This year's first bag of snap peas arrived from our CSA, Eatwell Farm, last Thursday. I've been harvesting them in small quantity out of my garden for weeks, but those have finally run their course. A new supplier is just the thing!
