Millet is an ancient grain staple in many diets around the world, particularly in Asia and Africa. It's highly nutritious, naturally gluten-free, and is known to be very versatile in cooking. Millet can be used in a variety of ways, from breakfast porridges to lunch salads, dinner sides, and even desserts. It's a good source of fiber, protein, and antioxidants.

Rinse the millet under cold water until the water runs clear.
In a saucepan, bring the water and salt to a boil.
Stir in the millet, reduce the heat to low, cover, and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes or until all the water has been absorbed.
Remove the pan from the heat and let it sit, covered, for an additional 10 minutes.
Fluff the millet with a fork before serving. You can also saute the millet in oil before adding water for a nuttier flavor.
