Usually found in bird seed, millet in pearled form can be a nice, nutritious dish for people.

Millet is actually a tiny, round seed that can be white, grey, red or yellow (pictured right, between wheat berries and wild rice).

Similar to whole grains, millet is a good source of dietary fibre and of important nutrients, including B vitamins and magnesium and iron.

It is gluten-free and thus can be eaten by those with gluten allergies.

Cooked millet can be served as an alternative to rice or as a porridge.

Ground millet can be added to muffin recipes to add some crunchiness.
