Recipe: Millet Salsa Bowls!

Posted by:

I’ve made this version of “the bowl” for myself a couple times now and liked it so much that I wanted to share the recipe!  It’s one of those simple, hearty dinners that can be thrown together without a lot of hassle using ingredients you probably already have around the house.  A little millet, some black beans, a few veggies and a splash of salsa and ta-da!  It’s dinner time.  Of course, you can always add whatever garnish you like.  I used nutritional yeast, but vegan sour cream or chunks of avocado would be good, too.

I’m also trying out a new recipe format.  From now on (and in older posts, as time permits), you’ll be able to print QV recipes right from the blog!  Let me know what you think.

Millet Salsa Bowl
Cuisine: Mexican
Author: Sam
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 2
  • 3/4 cup uncooked millet
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • lime juice and water, as needed
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup bell peppers, any color, chopped
  • 2/3 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 cup salsa, homemade or store-bought
  1. In a small covered saucepan, bring the water and millet to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes.
  2. Place a little lime juice and water in a medium skillet over medium heat. Saute the garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the onions and bell peppers and cook until softened, adding more water as necessary.
  3. Add the corn kernels and cook until defrosted. Add the beans and cook until heated through.
  4. Divide the millet between two bowls and top with the bean mixture. Pour equal amounts of salsa over each bowl. Stir and eat!
