• 2 cups millet, washed and drained

  • 1 big onion, diced

  • 1″ square of kombu sea vegetable

  • 1 medium head of cauliflower

  • 2 Tbsps tahini, sesame seed butter

  • 1 Tbsp umeboshi paste

  • 1 Tbsp Tamari soy sauce

  • 4 cups of spring water

  • 1 dutch oven or pot with lid
Millet Mash


At the base of the pot place the kombu add the onions and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and simmer 5 minutes.

On the side cut cauliflower in big peaces and then place on the onions, make so that the cauliflower is like a compact bead/layer. Put the millet on top of the cauliflower in a way that the grain stays on it and it doesn’t fall to the bottom of the pot, because that way it tends to burn easily.

Add the water pouring it along the perimeter, the walls of the pot. This operation is needed so the millet are not disturbed. Make so that all the millet are under water. Place the lid on the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and place a flame deflector under the pot. Cook in this matter for 40 minutes.

On the side mix the tahini with the umeboshi paste and the Tamari and add a few Tbsps of hot water to make it more liquid.

At the end of the cooking add the sauce to the millet and stir well.
Serve hot for best results.

Keep the leftovers to make millet croquettes the next day.

“The macrobiotic way of life recommended by the ancient wise people and practiced widely for physical, mental and spiritual development consists of the following arts; the way of eating, the way of breathing, and the way of daily life. Because a human being is part of his environment, and has evolved through biological development covering more than three billion years on this planet, his physical, mental and spiritual conditions are based upon what he consumes from his natural environment and his food. The way of eating is the most essential factor for his development.”
