To start:

-fine chop the onion and saute in the olive oil
until translucent about 3 mins
- add minced garlic
saute until fragrant
- add all spices, herbs, salt & millet
saute another 2 mins
- add tomatoes crushing them as you do so,
then add remaining liquid
- add broth or water
- bring to a boil, cover, and then simmer 20 mins

-pre heat oven to 350
- cut the ends off the zucchini and then cut them length wise in 1/2
- set them cut side down in a sauce pan 
- fill pan with water until it hits half way up the zucchini
- boil for 5 mins
- set aside on plate to cool

- add capers & olives to millet mixture and saute another 5 mins
( until millet is tender)

- when zucchini is cool enough scoop out the meat of the inside leaving about 1/4 in
- add mixture to inside of zucchinis

- let cool & then garnish with parsley before serving

Easy Shrooms


3 large portabello caps
1/2 tbsp coconut oil
1 clove garlic
pinch salt
pinch freshly ground black pepper
one gulp red wine
 ( for the shrooms.....you can have a glass!)


-On med/high heat saute sliced caps in coconut oil
-add garlic, seasonings, and wine
-saute until they shrivel up and they soak in all 
of the goodness
- about 15 mins
- as long as they don't burn you can't over cook them!

BTW....the wine was only $9.99...organic from Publix.....nice!
