This recipe contains no rice or wheat, and it’s vegan and veggie. I found it on

Millet and Mushroom Risotto

1 cup millet
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cups water

2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 red onion
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 cups chopped tomatoes
1 cup garbanzo beans (rinse well if canned)
Handful chopped cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste

  1. First cook the millet: Toast the millet in the olive oil for a few minutes until it smells fragrant. Add water and bring to a boil, let simmer for 20-25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a pan on medium heat and sauté the onion for about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook for another 5 minutes. Finally add the tomatoes and garbanzo beans, and keep cooking until the tomatoes are soft. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the millet and add cilantro.
