Hilary's Millet Meals

Hilary's, best known for their burgers, is branching out to make other healthy, vegan foods. The key here is really "healthy" because their latest meals aren't mindblowingly good, but they are healthy and good and that's what I love.

The Millet Medleys are four flavors of meals made with millet--a grain not typically used in frozen foods. The Traditional Herb Millet Medley, for example, is made with all good stuff: millet, white beans, carrots, peas, quinoa, roasted onions, olive oil, roasted garlic, parsley, salt, thyme, black pepper, and rosemary. I found this one to be lightest on flavor so a little hot sauce with it goes a long way!

My favorite is the Fresh Greek Millet Medley made with whole grain millet, garbanzo beans, Kalamata olives, and a burst of lemon, parsley, and mint.

The Golden Curry Millet Medley has chunky peas and lentils with lots of wholesome, curry taste.

And the Savory Mushroom Millet Medley is a simple, hearty mushroom mix with white beans, collard greens, and sun-dried tomatoes.

I'll be honest, when I first tried them, I was thinking that they were pretty plain, but after eating all of them, I really began to appreciate their simplicity--whole meals made with real, unprocessed food in just minutes. All you do is throw it all in a saucepan and heat it for a few minutes and voila! you have a meal for two!

They also have some great recipes for what to do with these meals online. You can find Hilary's products in natural grocery stores nationwide. To find one near you, click here.
