When my physician told me I had to eliminate gluten from my diet, she said, “This is going to be a little tricky since you are vegetarian.” No way, I thought, I can do this. Surely there’s not gluten in everything I eat.
My doctor was right, it was tricky. I spent most of a day in the grocery store reading labels of the foods I liked to eat. No more veggie burgers, veggie dogs, seitan, burger crumbles. And that was just the meat replacement products I had been using! I had to learn about bread, cereal, sauces and condiments. There was a lot to learn. I turned to the internet for help and Wheat Free Meat Free was one of the first gluten-free vegetarian blogs I discovered. Kalinda’s recipes have been a huge help and introduced me to a less-processed way to eat.
For this month’s Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger, I made Kalinda’s Millet Breakfast Casserole. Two years ago when I began my gluten-free journey, millet was new to me. It has recently become a staple in my cupboard. This is the first casserole I have made with millet and it turned out so well. It’s a hearty breakfast, perfect for starting off a busy day!
This casserole was great hot from the oven and also reheated well for breakfast the second day. I hope to try it with other berries, perhaps raspberries or blackberries, soon. This five-ingredient recipe is entering frequent rotation in the breakfast offerings at our house!
