Millet and vegetables casserole recipe

A little bit about millet:

Many people think that millet is made from wheat. These beautiful golden seeds are unjustly forgotten "bread" of the East. In Russia, a couple of hundred years ago millet porridge was the main dish on the table. Our ancestors prepared from millet porridge, beer, cakes, brew, add it to soups and desserts.

Millet is one of the least allergenic grains. It is very easily digested, so it is suitable even for people with sensitive digestion. Millets are rich in B vitamins (especially niacin, B6 and folic acid), calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, and zinc. Millets contain no gluten, so they are suitable for people with celiac disease or other forms of allergies/intolerance of wheat. It also contain the essential amino acids methionine, lecithin, and some vitamin E, it's rich in photochemicals including phytic acid, which is believed to lower cholesterol, and phytate, which is associated with reducing cancer risks.

This is russian recipe for healthy Millet and vegetables casserole 

you will need for tasty millet and vegetables casserole

  • a cup of dried millet
  • zucchini - 1 big or 2 medium
  • onion 
  • medium carrot
  • 2-3 potatoes
  • butter, vegetable oil or olive oil
  • 2-3 eggs

You can add other vegetables if you want. 

Boil millet in lightly salted water. Onions and carrots finely chop and simmer a little in butter. Grate zucchini and simmer too. Boil the potatoes, then put a piece of butter and make puree.

Mix in a bowl - millet, vegetables, eggs and leftovers butter. Tast for salt. I add a spoonful of sour cream. Put in an casserole and brush the top with egg or sour cream. Better put a thin layer in casseroles, so if you get it a lot of porridge, then put in two casseroles. Put in a preheated 200 degree oven and bake for about 30-40 minutes. It depends on the ovens power. I first turn on the heating top-bottom, then grill for last 5 minutes just to get a nice crust.

Serve with sour cream or without it.
