  • 2 cups quartered strawberries
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom


  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup uncooked millet
  • 2 cups whole or almond milk (plus extra as needed)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Hemp seeds, for topping
  • Maple syrup, for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 375˚ F. Toss strawberries with maple syrup and cardamom. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until strawberries are soft and juicy.
  2. In a coffee grinder or blender, pulse millet. Millet should be roughly half grain, half flour consistency.
  3. Heat a small skillet or pan over medium-low heat. Add the butter and melt. Stir in the millet and lightly toast for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add the milk and water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15-20 minutes. Stir the porridge occasionally to check consistency. Millet should be porridge consistency and grain pieces should be soft. If grains are not soft, add a bit more milk and continue to cook until grains are tender.
  5. Serve with roasted strawberries, a bit of heavy cream or milk, and a sprinkle of hemp seeds.


Tips & Tricks: Swap the milk/water for whatever your favorite alternative milk is or use all milk for a creamier consistency.
