1 cup water or apple juice concentrate
1/4 cup unrefined vegetable oil

For bread, bake 40 to 45 minutes or until done.
Yield: 12 servings Millet-Rice Quick Bread
Note: Millet cooks quickly but may taste slightly bitter. You can avoid this by rinsing the grains thoroughly in cold water. Millet is rich in magnesium and iron.
Nutrition Nibbles on Millet
Millet is a often overlooked grain that is mildly sweet and nutty in flavor. It's very versatile and has a comforting quality that makes it great for winter dishes. Millet provides fiber, iron, B vitamins, manganese, phosphorus and magnesium.
There are many varieties of millet, but the most commonly used is yellow proso, usually pre-packaged or in bulk bins at your local health food store. (Don't eat millet made for pets - it's not fit for human consumption).
Wheat Free Tip:
Rice and corn crackers and thins are wheat free as are Ryevitas (original) wheat free savory and sweet biscuits.
