This is a fascinating take on a classic recipe loved around the world. This ‘clean’ version of fried rice is made using millet, an ancient grain which is gluten-free and high in magnesium which can support heart health and lower the risk of Type 2 diabetes.
It also contains fresh chillis which are high in Vitamin C, A and E and eggs which are high in protein, B Vitamins, Selenium and Calcium. This dish is just the thing to boost your immune system over the winter months.
1/2 cup cooked millet
2 shallot stems chopped finely
2 carrots peeled and chopped finely
2 celery stems chopped finely
1 small onion chopped finely
2 small red chillis chopped finely
1/4 cup olive oil
3 pieces nitrate free bacon chopped finely
