Delicious, warming, and with a hearty dose of sneaky healthy foods (cauliflower, mushrooms, mirin, millet, onions, and garlic) – this potato mash will be a huge hit with your entire family (kids included) and a perfect addition to a warming holiday meal. Millet is a versatile, gluten free, heart-healthy whole grain. Mildly sweet, light and fluffy, it cooks in 30 minutes and is a brilliant addition to your mash. Millet was the prevalent grain of China before rice. In 2005 in northwestern China archeologists unearthed a perfectly preserved 4000 year old bowl containing long yellow noodles made from foxtail millet (!) This cereal grain is something worth experimenting once you’ve perfected your quinoa making abilities!
Serves 4 | Prep Time 15 mins | Cook Time 35 mins
1 medium onion, small diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup Eden Millet, washed, drained
4 cups cauliflower, chopped
3 cups water
1 Tbsp Eden Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Heat oil in a medium saucepan and sauté the onions and garlic for 2 minutes. Add millet, cauliflower, salt and water. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the flame to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes.
While the millet is cooking, heat the oil for the gravy in a medium skillet and sauté the onions and mushrooms with the sea salt for about 5 minutes. Add the flour and stir constantly until vegetables are coated. Slowly add the Edensoy, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens. Add the mirin and pepper. Simmer about 10 minutes.
When the millet is done, remove from the flame and mash with a potato masher. Serve with mushroom gravy ladled over and garnish with parsley.
