If you didn’t catch it, last week we took a fantastic backpacking adventure to the Bull of the Wood Wilderness and made this Savory Millet Porridge. It was so delicious that when we got home we had to make it again and what better way to appreciate the bounty of blueberries that is in season right now. There have been tons of fresh blueberries in the farmers markets and stores lately, not to mention all the U-pick farms around.
We are loving this new morning breakfast staple and plan to continue to use it in our rotation. We are even considering substituting it for creamy polenta when we make garlic greens and bbq tempeh! Its nutty flavor and great combination of protein, magnesium and fiber make it an easy breakfast or even dinner choice. We are still undecided which version of this breakfast porridge we like better- the Savory or the Sweet. Enjoy!
