Baked Millet

Prep: 10 minutes Cook: 1 1/4 hours


Many people do not know how to use millet, the grain that is more familiar in birdseed than as a food source. We have been eating millet this way for over 25 years. It tastes best with some kind of a sauce served over it. Use as a variation for brown rice.


  • 1 1/4 cups millet
  • 4 cups tomato juice
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp sage
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place the millet in a large bowl. Put the remaining ingredients in a blender jar and process until smooth. Add to millet and mix well. Pour into a square baking dish, cover and bake for 1 1/4 hours.

Hint: Use various types of tomato juice to change the flavor slightly, or use vegetable broth instead of the tomato juice.
