  • 1 large garlic clove, chopped

  • Bunch spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 50g fresh cranberries
  • 1 tbsp clear honey
  • 40g margarine

Method

  1. Heat oil and cook millet for about 5 minutes until golden brown. 
  2. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds, then add the stock and port. 
  3. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for about 30 minutes until the stock is absorbed and the millet is tender.  
  4. Add spring onions and cranberries. 
  5. Cook for a minute before adding the honey, then season to taste.

-TIPS-

  • Do not peel mushrooms or remove their stalks. They keep their shape better and all their nutrition.
  • If you have any leftover stuffing and cranberry sauce after Christmas, mix them gently together, spoon onto some mushrooms and cook as above.
  • There will be good supplies of big open mushrooms and value packs - ideal for this New Year supper or party dish.
