Millet Salad Picnic

In Recipes on 6 June 2019 at 1:12 am

Thanks to the kind of friends you can make and ask for help in the same breath, the 5th annual Peace, Justice and You(th) camp featured freshly made millet salad. On one day notice Sireesha got foxtail millet and garbanzo beans, cooked them and brought them to the Kiddie Camp (yes that is what it is called) and on site, several parents jumped in to chop the veggies.  Lo and behold by noon lunch was ready.   Apart from the millet salad we had hummus, bread sliced tomato, cucumber and carrot and plenty of fruit.

DUH! It was delicious.

Bob’s Red Mill Farro

As the delighted recipient of a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Farro from my dear friend Lisa who keeps introducing me to new ancient grains, I perused the recipe printed on the bag and became, if such a think can be imagined, even more delighted because I actually had the ingredients. They are: vegetable stock, olive oil, onion, garlic, farro, mushrooms, green peas, butter, cheese, black pepper, and salt.
