Of all the so-called pseudograins (gluten-free items like quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth, and teff are actually seeds), millet might just be the most versatile. A staple cereal in Africa, Asia, and India, nutty-tasting hulled millet can be cooked into pilafs, simmered longer for a smooth breakfast cereal, stirred raw into baked goods for extra crunch, sprouted for salads, ground into flour, and even popped like popcorn.
