We love millet for its health benefits and light texture. The gluten-free ancient seed is rich in iron, magnesium, calcium and vitamin B.

We channeled the herby flavors of tabbouleh by tossing fluffy millet with mint and parsley and a lemony dressing. Meanwhile, shrimp seasoned with salt and pepper roasts in the oven until juicy and tender. Cook, relax, and enjoy!
