Ingredients

  • 1 Cup millet
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 3/4 Pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, sliced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 Cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 Cup half-and-half
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

Toast millet in a medium pot over medium-high heat until fragrant and just golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Carefully add 2 cups water, bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until liquid is almost absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Set aside for 5 minutes; uncover and fluff with a fork. Meanwhile, heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add Brussels sprouts, onions, salt, and pepper and cook until golden, about 5 minutes. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in skillet, add mushrooms; cook until golden, about 5 minutes. Add half-and-half and sage and simmer until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer to bowl with Brussels sprouts, add cooked millet, lemon juice, and then toss.

Brussels Sprouts Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Brussels Sprouts Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook different types separately and then combine.
