Low-FODMAP Cheddar Broccoli Millet


Low-FODMAP & Gluten-Free Cheddar Broccoli Millet  /  Delicious as it Looks

I recently heard that September is National Whole Grains month, so I thought I would celebrate by sharing this delicious recipe using a delightful whole grain: millet. I love, love, love carbs and I'm keen on spending a whole month celebrating them, how about you? Millet is an ancient grain and often found in bird seed mixes! What's good for the birds is good for us I guess. It has a mildly sweet and nutty flavor and is a good source of carbohydrates, fiber and protein. Plus, it's low in FODMAPs!



Cheddar Broccoli Millet Ingredients  /  Delicious as it Looks

This recipe is a perfect side dish for fish or chicken. It has only five ingredients (besides water) and is very easy to make. I think the secret to this recipe is the FODY Chicken Base. It adds a wonderful savoriness and extra level of flavor that melds really well with the cheese.

Chopping Broccoli

I like to chop the broccoli pretty fine so it kind of melts into the dish and doesn't interfere with the creaminess. This side dish reminds me a lot of those pre-packaged rice mixes found in the grocery store. Those are fine, but usually have FODMAP ingredients. This is my version of that pantry staple. I find that I mostly eat the same three grains over and over again: oats, rice and quinoa. It's a great idea to add something different and get more variety in my diet. Millet is just the answer.

  1. This recipe doesn’t seem like something I would enjoy, however I do know that others would love to and I’ll try out the Millet Porridge instead.
