Vegetarian Stir-Fried Millet
- Product Code: REC74
1. Cook the Pearl millet: Bring 3 cups of salted water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the millet, lower to a simmer and cook, covered, for 20 to 25 minutes. Fluff with a fork, season with salt to taste and let it rest, covered, for 5 minutes. (You can do this ahead of time and refrigerate the leftover millet until you're ready to heat up the skillet).
2. Arrange all of your prepared ingredients within easy reach the stove. Over medium-high heat, heat half of the peanut/vegetable oil and half of the sesame oil in a wok or large skillet. Once it is hot, pour in the eggs and swirl the pan to create a thin layer of egg. Let it set up (about 45 seconds), then fold the eggs over on themselves and cook for about another 30 seconds and transfer to a plate or cutting board. Let it cool a little and then slice it into strips.
3. Wipe off any remaining egg from the pan and return it to medium-high heat. Add the remaining oil and let it heat up enough so that a drop of water sizzles on contact. Stir in the ginger and garlic and cook for about 15 seconds. Stir in the carrots, asparagus and green onions for another 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Stir in the millet and tamari/shoyu/soy sauce for 30 seconds, then add the egg and cook for another 30 seconds. Divide into two bowls and top with some fresh cilantro leaves, a sprinkle of red pepper flakes and a little dash of shoyu, sesame oil or tamari, if necessary.
