* to cook millet, use 2 1/2 cups water per 1 cup dry millet. It does
not usually need prewashing. Cook 40-55 minutes and use as a
substitute for rice in rice dishes. This is one of the best grains,
high in vitamins and very alkaline.
Mix cooked millet, hazelnut flour (or ground nuts) and arrowroot
powder (or substitute flours) together. Heat the oil and saute the
onions, brocolli and carrots until semi-tender. Add the other
vegetables and saute another 1-2 minutes more. Break up the bouillon
cubes in the stir fry and mix them well with everything else. Remove

quinoa in only 2 cups water so that the grain will be less tender
than usual. Measure 2 cups of the cold cooked grain before using in
the recipe. Other grains may also be used. Experiment with kasha,
buckwheat, pot barley, bulgur or other whole grains.
