Millet with stewed Apples, Raisins, Cinnamon and Cream

Posted by Muriel Hedgcock

Millet is the only grain that is alkaline. It is rich in iron and makes a healthy and delicious breakfast. Served with apples, cinnamon, raisins and cream it makes a wonderful start to the day. Millet seeds are a source of fibre which can help maintain a healthy digestive system.
My family love this breakfast as it reminds them of apple pie. So its both tasty and healthy.


1 cup millet washed
1/2 tsp salt
1-2 apples peeled & chopped
1 large handful of raisins
1 -2 Tbsp sugar

Thick Cream

Rinse millet in sieve under running water.
Cook millet as per instructions on the packet. It normally takes 30 min to cook.
To Stew the apples:
Bring 200ml- 250ml water to the boil. Add sugar and simmer. Add raisins and cinnamon.
Peel, core and chop the apples and add to the simmering liquid. Stew for 5-10min.
Apples should be soft but not mushy.

Dish up cooked millets in 4 individual bowls.
Divide apples mixture and spoon on top.
Garnish with generous amount of cream and extra cinnamon.

Can also be served with milk and honey drizzled on top.
