2mediumsweet potatoes- peeled and cubed into 1-inch (2-cm) pieces
scrambled eggs with soy sauce
dumplings or potstickers
In a small saucepan, add the millet and the water and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat, and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. It will seem very watery at first, but it will start to thicken at the end.
After 20 minutes, stir in the cubed sweet potatoes and continue to simmer for an additional 30 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are softened and the porridge starts to thicken.
Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving. The porridge will continue to thicken as it cools.
Serve with desired toppings.
The amount of water can be adjusted to your preference. If you prefer a more watery porridge, add up to 2 additional cups of water.
