Millet with broccoli, peas and cashew sauce

Quick to make and delicious recipe for millet – great as a light dinner or salad for a weeknight. I cooked millet groats with fried onion, garlic and broth together – millet prepared this way is really delicious. Noteworthy is also the sauce, which adds lightness and a lot of flavor to the dish – it’s slightly sweet and sour, with lime and cardamom – this combination of flavors is really brilliant. The whole meal is complemented by salty feta, crispy cashews and aromatic basil. I recommend it! 🙂
