- 3/4 cup millet or other grain
- 2 cups shredded purple cabbage
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 1 cup thinly sliced sugar snap peas
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion
- 1/2 cup roasted and salted peanuts, crushed
Thai Peanut Sauce
- 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
- 3 tbs. tamari or soy sauce
- 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
- 1 tbs. agave syrup or maple syrup
- 1 tbs. rice vinegar
- 1 tsp. sesame oil
- 1/2 lime, juiced
- Pinch red-pepper flakes
Cook the millet according to package directions. When the millet is done, fluff it with a fork and set it aside to cool.
Meanwhile, make the sauce: Mix the peanut butter and tamari (or soy sauce) in a microwave-safe bowl and heat until the peanut butter is soft and easy to stir, about 30 seconds. Add the ginger, agave syrup, rice vinegar, sesame oil, lime juice, and red-pepper flakes. Whisk together to fully incorporate the flavors.
Add the purple cabbage, carrots, sugar snap peas, cilantro, and green onion to a large mixing bowl. Add the cooled millet and toss to combine. Pour the sauce over the millet-vegetable mixture and stir to thoroughly coat. Sprinkle the peanuts on top of the salad and chill until ready to serve.
