Beet millet salad sounds for many at first moment not particularly exciting. After all, we are just after Easter and for many it is back to work. Healthy dishes that are quick and uncomplicated to prepare are ideal for this. I’m talking about aromatic, nutrient-rich salads that have nothing in common with a classic green salad. Boring was yesterday, because today there is a sophisticated recipe that makes the heart of every vegan beat faster. I am in any case totally thrilled and also my husband was very positively surprised, what you can do with millet so everything. Let’s get started together.

I did some research on Google and was amazed to learn that millet was once a staple food even in our latitudes. Unfortunately, it has been banned from domestic fields for efficiency reasons and corn and wheat have been grown on a large scale in its place. In many other parts of the world, the situation is quite different, because there millet is an absolute staple food. I would like to see it used again more often in our house, because the little yellow grains are super nutrient-rich, gluten-free and very digestible.

But now let’s get to our salad. The dressing is simple and quickly mixed from light balsamic vinegar, olive oil, maple syrup, salt, pepper and hot mustard. That’s all there is to it. For the salad we need cooked millet, beet, black beans and pecans (or other nuts of choice). This all goes together in a large bowl and is mixed together with the dressing. Then it goes again in the refrigerator and is allowed to draw a little. Simply delicious!

Let’s take another closer look at millet and what all is in this small, fine grain:

  • Contains a lot of iron with 7mg per 100g
  • Rich in silicon for skin, hair and nails
  • High content of magnesium, vitamin A, B vitamins and vitamin E

TIP: Always wash millet hot before eating or boil briefly in a pot with plenty of water and then rinse with cold water. Small fat molecules, which can taste bitter, adhere to the millet grains. Since I rinse the millet with hot water beforehand, it tastes excellent. If you also want to make sure that the phytic acid is broken down, soak the millet in cold water for 2 hours before processing (pour away the soaking water).

Nutritious vegan salads with millet

In our recipe, I made sure to use the most nutrient-dense ingredients possible. The black beans provide you with valuable fiber and high-quality vegetable protein, and the millet puts the crown on important nutrients. The beet scores with a very high water content, minerals, vitamin C and folic acid. If you prefer a different salad combination today, I have the following suggestions for you:

The beet millet salad is:

  • full of valuable vitamins and minerals
  • High fiber
  • balanced flavors
  • saturating
  • simply made
