Millet Cauliflower Mash

During the Thanksgiving Holiday, we sit down at the traditional family feast. We have our classic dishes of a wonderfully roasted turkey, green bean casserole, homemade rolls, and deep turkey gravy poured over buttery mashed potatoes.  Or… can we give a familiar flavor and improve the health of our Thanksgiving meal so a few more of our family will be at the dinner table next year?

Millet is our grain of the month for November and according to the Whole Grain Council adding millet to your diet may help you control your blood sugars and cholesterol and decrease your triglycerides and C-reactive protein.

Ingredients
  1. ½ cup millet
  2. 2 ½ cups water
  3. 4 ounces sliced cauliflower stems and florets (about 1 ½ cups)
  4. ½ tsp kosher salt
  5. Optional: butter, roasted garlic, wasabi, horseradish and/or sour cream to taste
Instructions
  1. Wash and drain your millet, then place it in a saucepan with a lid. Add the water, cauliflower, and salt.
  2. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to a low simmer. Cover and cook for 35 minutes, checking and giving it a stir after 30 minutes. The millet will begin to break open and thicken the liquid in the pot. When the millet is very soft and thick, take it off the heat and let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Use a blender for the smoothest puree, but a food processor will work almost as well. Purée until the mixture is as smooth as you can get it.
  4. Add butter or other flavorings, if desired, and serve as a side dish.
