In summer, you especially want lightness, but you will not be full of grass alone. Add some healthy carbs – millet and protein foods – feta and green summer salad turns into a vegetarian superfood. Millet, native to us, will perfectly replace the currently fashionable bulgur and quinoa in salads. It will turn out much more budgetary, but no less tasty. By the way, millet is now actively gaining popularity among supporters of proper nutrition and, perhaps, will soon become one of the domestic super products. No wonder – after all, millet is not inferior to wheat in terms of plant protein content, but at the same time it is a gluten-free product! And millet also contains a lot of fiber, it has a low glycemic index and acidity level shifted towards alkali. Sheer benefit! Fashion girls who are fond of proper nutrition, urgently run to the store for millet!

Rinse the millet to clean water in a fine-mesh colander, shake off the water.
