Recipe for Millet Pie

Ingredients that you need:

  • 10 oz. (300 g) millet
  • 2 cups (500 ml) of water
  • 1 large leek
  • 12 oz. (350 g) cleaned chard leaves
  • olive oil
  • sea salt
  • 3-4 tablespoons sesame


Wash the chard well, clean from the stalks and briefly blanch in boiling, salted water. Then quickly pour cold water, drain well and cut the larger.

Cut leek into small pieces and stew on a little olive oil.

Clean the millet of impurities, and then grind in an electric mill, to obtain a powder (flour).

In a mixing bowl put millet, chard, leeks, water, salt and a little olive oil. Then stir up fine. Mass will not be completely thick, but also not liquid.

Grease the casserole with olive oil and put in the oven at 220°C (430°F) for the oil to warm up. After 5-10 minutes pour the mixture into the casserole, flatten, sprinkle with sesame seeds. Return it to bake for about an hour (or until gets fine yellow color).

Remove baked pie from the oven, and serve when cool. Enjoy!


Instead leeks, you can use spring onions, and instead of chard you can spinach. Optionally you can add a handful of finely chopped prunes.
