    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 6
    1 c. whole millet
    2 c. Hy-Vee low-sodium chicken broth
    ¼ tsp. salt
    2 tsp. Hy-Vee Select olive oil
    1 c. finely chopped red onion
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    ½ c. finely chopped yellow bell pepper
    ½ c. Hy-Vee frozen green peas
    ½ c. finely chopped zucchini
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    1 to 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
    ¼ c. thinly sliced fresh basil


    1. In a heavy sauté pan, toast the millet on medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, bring broth to boiling, then carefully pour broth into the millet. Add salt; cover, reduce heat to low and cook 15 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions; cook and stir 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic, bell pepper, peas and zucchini; cover and continue to cook until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
    3. Fluff millet with a fork, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir vegetable mixture into millet. Add lemon juice and stir. Sprinkle with fresh basil, and serve.
