What Is Organic Millet?
Organic millet grain is seed from an exceptionally resilient type of grass. There are several species of millets, but all of them are highly resistant to heat and drought. This is why this crop is a staple in many African and Asian countries, where agricultural conditions are less than ideal.
Millets are used as food for people across the world, animal feed, and even grazing crops in some areas. This simple grain plays an extremely important part in the fight against world hunger. It’s also a basis of numerous traditional alcoholic drinks in both Asia and Africa.
Millet is one of the essential crops on the planet. As it’s delicious and nutritious, the grain’s popularity grows.

Cooked organic millet grain has only 1.7 grams of total fat. 48.7 mg of that are omega 3 essential fatty acids. Eating foods rich in dietary fiber is associated with numerous health benefits. Organic millet seed definitely falls into that category as it contains 2.3 grams in a cup. It also has only 0.2 gram of sugar in a serving and no starch.

- How to Cook Organic Millet Grain?
- A cup of raw dry organic millet seed will yield about 3 ½ cups of cooked grain. Depending on the result you seek, you can use 2 or 3 cups of water. The latter will allow you to make a creamy organic millet cereal that will be perfect for breakfast. Note that you’ll need to stir it more frequently when cooking and fluff it up nicely in the end.If you want to enjoy organic millet grain as a side dish, salad ingredient, etc., use this recipe:
- 1 cup organic millet seed
- 2 cups water or broth
- ¼ teaspoon salt (or more to your taste)
- 1 tablespoon butter (or a vegan alternative)
- Toast dry millet in a large saucepan for about 5 minutes. This will enhance the aroma and flavor of the grain. Stir frequently so that it doesn’t burn.
- Pour water into the saucepan, add salt, and stir thoroughly.
- Bring to a boil and reduce heat to the lowest setting. Add butter and stir gently. Cover the pot and let simmer for 15 minutes.
NOTE: peek into the saucepan rarely and only stir your millet the tiniest bit. Uncovering the pot and stirring too vigorously will damage the tiny seeds and ruin the texture of your dish.
- Remove the pan from heat (still covered) and let it stand undisturbed for 10 more minutes.
- Fluff up cooked millet with a fork and serve warm.
