In my opinion, millet is an under-appreciated grain. Lately, I have been guilty of neglecting this nutty-tasting grain that resembles couscous but is packed with more nutrients and flavor. Here it comes together in a simple and zesty Mexican-style stir-fry that is well-balanced with the addition of pinto beans, crunchy green beans and sweet corn.
You may also consider using quinoa in place of the millet though I found the texture of the cooked millet worked quite well in this dish. The spicing and technique could be used for any combination of vegetables and grains that one fancies to serve as a substantial side.
