Sugar Snap Peas And Millet Makes A Great Gluten Free Dish

I love whole grains as they are so good for you and loaded with nutrition. One of my favorite whole grains is millet. Millet is a gluten-free whole grain that is loaded with fiber, protein, and iron. It has a taste similar to brown rice and makes a yummy side dish. I had a package of sugar snap peas in my freezer that I wanted to use so I made this yummy dish with them. You can use fresh sugar snap peas too but I used frozen as that is what I had.

                                  Sugar Snap Peas With Millet
                      2 cups water
                                  1 teaspoon salt
                                 1/2 cup uncooked millet
                                 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
                                 1 teaspoon garlic powder
                                 12 ounces frozen sugar snap peas thawed or two cups fresh
                                 1 tablespoon soy sauce
                                  1 tablespoon black sesame seeds

Bring the water and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the millet, cover and simmer for 40 minutes.
Combine the oil and garlic powder together. Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat and add the oil. Saute the sugar snap peas in the skillet for about 2 minutes. If using fresh sugar snap peas, saute them a little longer. Then add the millet, soy sauce, and sesame seeds. Combine until mixed. Place in a serving dish and sprinkle more sesame seeds over the mixture if desired. Serves 4. This is great for a side dish with fish or chicken.

What is your favorite whole grain?

I think I'd like it, but not so sure about the rest of the family--they are not big rice fans
