Saucy Pizza Millet Skillet

Saucy Pizza Millet Skillet

This one-skillet meal is the perfect comfort food that requires minimal cleanup while still delivering maximum flavor. Our little riff on a pizza uses our nutritious Organic Millet as a base. It's not only tasty, but an incredible source of naturally-gluten free fiber. 

Ingredients:

Millet Base:

1 C Organic Grains Millet

2 C Vegetable broth

1/4 tsp salt

1 Tbsp Italian herbs (think: rosemary, basil, oregano, sage, parsley)

1 Tbsp lemon zest

Toppings:

2 C Spaghetti sauce 

2 C Protein of your choice (we chose Lightlife's sausage)

2 C cheese or plant-based alternative (Chao's slices are delicious) 

Fresh basil to taste 

 

Directions: 

Millet Base:

  1. Pour rinsed millet, veggie broth, salt, herbs and lemon zest into a skillet with a tight-fitting lid,
  2. Cover and let simmer on low heat for 15-20 minutes or until most of the broth has been absorbed.

Toppings:

  1. While your millet is cooking, begin to cook your protein, 
  2. Heat your pasta sauce on low until warm,
  3. After the millet base has been completed, begin to assemble your toppings putting on the sauce first, following with the cheese and then finishing with your protein
  4. Heat on low until the cheese has melted to your satisfaction,
  5. Top with fresh basil,
  6. Serve straight out of the skillet and enjoy!
