Have you ever wondered what a cajun millet cake tastes? Do you think it is healthy? Whatever the case, someone has to at least give it a try.
Cooking can be quite fun when eating and exercising, so I want to encourage you to find a healthy balance. This will make all the difference.
I have a grain hoarding problem in that I keep too many on hand at all times. I’m overly stocked. However, for people who are just starting out or just want a few key grains to keep on hand, I always tell them to pick up millet. It’s quick cooking, doesn’t have as strong of flavor as quinoa, and can be used in so many different ways. A few of my favorite millet recipes:
Spices: Play around with the spice mixtures- I’ve just added a bit of garlic powder and smoked paprika before in place of the cajun spices but so many combinations will work.
Cheese: Adding a sharp, shredded cheddar into the cakes creates a lovely, melted cheese after cooking. Or, you can add a tangy feta for a bit more saltiness.
