Moroccan Millet Pilaf [Vegan]
- 1 teaspoon cumin powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (about 10 turns)
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne powder
- 2 cups sliced carrot rounds
- 1 cup diced red onion
- 1 cup uncooked millet
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 1 dried bay leaf
- 1/4 cup raisins
In a small dish, stir together the cumin, salt, turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon and cayenne. Set this aside for now.
Heat a medium-sized pot over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the carrot and onion and saute for 5 minutes, adding a splash of water if they stick.
Add the spice mixture that you set aside earlier, along with the millet, garlic and ginger. Stir and cook for an additional minute.
Add the water and stir to deglaze the pot. Add the bay leaf and increase the heat to high and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid, and simmer for 18 minutes, until the vegetables and millet is tender and the water has evaporated.
Remove from the heat and stir in the raisins. Allow to cool completely before storing in the refrigerator.
