This Cherry Burrata Millet Grain Bowl has nutty millet, grilled red onions, charred shallots, spicy corn, grilled chicken, fresh cherries, creamy Burrata and a bright cherry vinaigrette! It’s the summer bowl to eat on repeat!
Tired of quinoa? Ha! Never!
But today I introduce to you a new ancient whole grain: millet.
Millet was cultivated in the pre-Neolithic era. I told you it was ancient!
A more relevant fun fact is that millet is gluten free! [Even I succumb]
I first had millet when my boyfriend cooked it as part of an elaborate meal for my grandparents. He used a rather complicated method that he learned at Jean Georges, but I’ve simplified it for everyday cooking!
There is the nuttiness of the millet, the crunchy sweet grilled corn, the blackened, slightly caramelized onions, sweet cherries and creamy, luscious Burrata.
I could eat burrata everyday amiright? It’s so creamy, slightly salty, slightly sweet. It is everything.
If you can’t find burrata you could substitute the highest quality ricotta you can find.
But if you live in NYC, go to Di Palo’s in Little Italy. Divine.
The next night I took all the cold leftovers piled them high on top of a bed of mixed greens with some leftover steak – voila! Salad! Two meals, very little work 🙂
