Serving Size: 4
1/2 cup uncooked organic hulled millet, rinsed

- Place the apple in a medium sized saucepan with the millet, quinoa, milk, 3 cups of water, spices and salt and bring to the boil.
- Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the millet is tender and the quinoa has grown tails.
- Once cooked, remove from heat, stir through the honey and serve whilst hot into bowls.
- Top with apple slices, tahini, raisins, pepitas, sunflower seeds and cacao nibs and a pouring of extra milk if needed. Enjoy.
