Recipe Ingredients for Tomato Basil Millet Kale Wraps

1 cup uncooked millet
3 cups vegetable broth
15 ounces black-eyed peas
1/3 cup basil
1/8 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 Salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Tomato Basil Millet Kale Wraps

  1. Toast millet in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and just golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and carefully add broth. Return to heat and bring to a boil over medium high heat then reduce heat to medium low, cover and simmer until liquid is absorbed and millet is tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Transfer millet to a large bowl, fluff with a fork and set aside to let cool.

  2. Add black-eyed peas, green onions and basil to millet, toss gently and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, then pour dressing over millet mixture and toss to coat. Add tomatoes, then spoon salad over lettuce leaves and serve.
