Number of Servings: 6


    1 c uncooked millet, rinsed
    2 c butternut squash, peeled and diced (or forzen cubes)
    2.5 c water
    1 tbs olive oil
    2 tsp grated ginger
    2 tsp curry powder
    1 tsp cumin
    1 tsp salt
    1/3 to 1/2 c chopped cilantro

    lemon juice to garnish


1. In a medium pot toasted the milled in 1 tbs olive oil until fragrant (about 3-5 minutes)
2. Add water, butternut squash, ginger, curry, cumin and salt and bring to a boil. Then lower heat, and let simmer for 25 minutes or until water is absorbed.
TIP: It helps to lift the lid and stir the mixture occasionally to get a creamier texture. The butternut squash should be pretty much melted when the mixture is ready.
3. Remove the pot from heat and let cool--you can transfer the mix to another bowl and spread it out in order to speed the cooling process. Mix in the cilantro
4. Heat a skillet to medium heat and add a little olive oil. Heap large spoonfuls of the mix on the skillet and let them cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until golden.
5. Serve warm with lemon wedges!

The mushy millet mix is tasty even when you don't grill it into cakes. :)

    We had these for dinner tonight and loved them. Will be making them again and again. We may add more ginger and cilantro, as we really like spicy. But, I would say try them as they are first time around, THEY ARE GOOD!! - 3/14/09
