Recipe Ingredients for Millet-Amaranth Porridge

2 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup millet
1/4 cup amaranth
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup raisins

Recipe Directions for Millet-Amaranth Porridge

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the water, millet, amaranth, cinnamon, sea salt, cardamom, and allspice and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 18-20 minutes. Stir in the non-dairy milk and raisins or dried apricots . Increase the heat to medium-low, cover and cook for another 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. At this point, the porridge should be thick and soft with most of the liquid absorbed. To thicken it further, let it cook without a lid fr another few minutes. If desired, use a handblender to puree the porridge a bit in spots, to make it smoother. Otherwise, remove from heat and serve, sweetening to taste with maple syrup if desired and stirring in additional non-dairy milk to desired consistency.
