  • 2 Tablespoons peanut oil
  • ¼ cup sliced red onion
  • ½ cup sliced mushrooms
  • ½ cup shredded carrot
  • 3 cups finely sliced green cabbage
  • ¼ cup sliced green onion
  • 1 Tablespoon mirin
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  1. In a saucepan, bring broth or water to a boil. Add millet, stir, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until soft. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. In a large skillet heat 2 Tablespoons peanut oil over medium-high heat. Add onions, mushrooms and carrots and sauté until wilted. Add cabbage and cook until very soft, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in green onions and millet and sauté over high heat until millet browns slightly. Drizzle mirin, soy sauce and sesame oil onto mixture and cook until liquid is absorbed.
