Submitted by: SINKNITTY

Introduction

This recipe was developed to bring together all those oh so good for you but what do I make with them items. Millet, Lentils, and Tofu. This recipe is made for two because I'm usualy cooking just for me and my 3 year old and he only eats a little bit. :) Millet is the grain with the highest protein content, and if you've never tryed it tastes nutty and delicious.

Directions

Cook 1/2 c dry millet per package directions and 1/4 c lentils per package direction. This takes up the most of your time but if you make ahead then the meal goes together very quickly. Plus you have extra for later. You won't use all of the millet and lentils you cook unless you make this for more than 2 people.
In a skillet heat EVOO till warm then add garlic and onions and heat until onion are translucent, then add the ground red pepper and oregano. Stir until you can smell the oregano.
Turn up the heat in the pan to high and then add the tofu and veggies. Stir fry until the tofu starts to tun golden and the veggies are tender (about 5 mins)
Add the millet and the lentils and stir fry until the millet and lentils are warmed through and become toasty. (About 2 min) Then add the greens and stir until they are wilted but still crunchy and serve.
Top with 1 tblsp Pamasean Cheese.

If you like a little bit of bragg's amino acids is very good on this or soy sauce but they optional so are not listed on the ingredient list for the calorie count.
This serves two people and is proportioned to be an all in one balanced dinner. Very low in callories and even more so if you want to cut the olive oil for a non stick pan and a little cooking spray and skip the parm cheese all together. ;)
