A recipe for mashed potatoes minus the potatoes!

Millet Mash


Quantity Ingredients
1 cup / 250 ml millet
3 cups / 750 ml water
1 medium onion
1 small head of cauliflower
2 tbsp / 25 ml cold pressed oil (olive, flax, hemp, etc.)
2 or 3 cloves garlic (optional, but delicious)
sea salt, to taste


Rinse millet well by covering with water and swishing it around, then draining. Do this 2-4 times until the water runs clear.

Chop cauliflower and onion into chunks.

Put rinsed millet and water in a large pot and cover with chopped vegetables and salt. Bring to a rapid boil, cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes, until the vegetables are soft and the millet is cooked.

Remove from heat, add the cold pressed oil, and mash with a large fork or potato masher. For an extra smooth consistency, use a hand blender or a food processor.
