Holiday Millet and Amaranth with Herbs Recipe




  • 1½ cups millet, soaked for at least 8 hours
  • ½ cup amaranth, soaked for at least 8 hours
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2/3 cup celery, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil or ghee 2 teaspoons dry sage leaf, crumbled 1 teaspoon dry thyme leaf
  • 1 teaspoon herbs de Provence
  • Celtic sea salt or Herbamare, to taste


  1. Bring millet, amaranth, water, and bay leaves to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and cook for 30 for minutes. Remove bay leaves.
  2. Sauté onion, celery and garlic in coconut oil or ghee over medium heat until tender, but still firm. Add herbs and sauté for about 30 seconds to release flavors. Add veggies to cooked grains and stir to combine thoroughly. Add sea salt or Herbamare, to taste.

For a pretty holiday presentation, use a cup or bowl to create a mold. Rinse the cup in cool water, pack with grain mixture, and immediately invert onto a serving plate. Herbs de Provence is a wonderful herb mixture that, in addition to rosemary, tarragon and thyme, also contains lavender flower. You’ll love it!
