    Podkayne's Note:

    Modified from Cooking Light, June 2007. I really, really *want* to like millet—it's a healthy whole grain, after all... but I've struggled to find a recipe I really like, and that my husband likes. This recipe is flavorful, relatively easy to make, and has vegetables for color, flavor, and additional nutritional value. It makes great leftovers, too. The original recipe calls for toasted walnuts, but my husband doesn't like them, so we opted for toasted sesame seed instead.
