NOTE: DMs recipes calls for 3 to 4 tablespoons of butter: half to be used to roast the millet and the other half to soften the onions. Melt the butter in a skillet, add the millet, and roast, stirring often, over medium heat. When the grains have started to color (and possibly pop), after about 4 minutes, remove them from the heat and set them aside. In a heavy saucepan fitted with a lid, melt additional butter or use a liquid, softened the onion with herbs, about 5 minutes. Season lightly with salt. Add the millet, stir to combine, and pour in the water. Bring to a boil, cover, and adjust the heat to very low or set the pot on a Flame-Tamer. Cook for 35 minutes; then add the roasted peppers and gently combine them with the millet, using a fork. Return the lid to the pot and continue cooking for 5 to 10 minutes or until the millet is sufficiently done. (If it isnt quite done but the water has been absorbed, add 2 or 3 tablespoons water, cover, and continue to cook for 5 minutes.) Loosen the grains and gently heap the millet into a serving dish. Garnish with the herbs and freshly ground pepper to taste. Deborah Madison, "The Savory Way", Posted by patHanneman to Eat-lf 6 Sep 97 Chefs Notes --> Millet makes a lovely golden pilaf with a pleasant nutty flavor and textural surprises. Unlike other grains, individual millet seeds do not end up completely separate, nor do they cook absolutely evenly. What youll end up with is a fluffy pilaf that is also a little crunchy. Millet is also a thirsty grain with an enormous capacity to absorb liquids. **A juicy stew -- one made with eggplants and tomatoes, chick peas or plump white beans -- would be just the thing to serve alongside. This pilaf is seasoned with marjoram, basil, and a hint of saffron from the peppers. Toasting the millet seeds in butter gives the millet a nutty flavor and keeps it moist and succulent. The saffron peppers can be made days or weeks in advance. Makes 4 servings <-- Posted to Digest eat-lf.v097.n224 by KitPATh
