Millet Chickpea Chard Carrot Breakfast Bake. Vegan Glutenfree recipe

Found this in the drafts :). Savory cheesy breakfast bakes. Cooked millet with greens and chickpea flax coconut milk mixture. These baby somewhat crust-less quiches bake up to soft nutritious breakfast or side. I saw this Spinach millet egg bake at Naturally Ella some time back and decided to make vegan version. The pictures were waiting to be edited.. and today is the day.
Add your favorite greens and some veggies. Add in some dairy free cheese or other grains or quinoa. These pies can be made ahead and kept. Or mix up everything at night and bake in the morning. Or make fat cakes with the batter on the stove. This bake was also how I came up with this Millet Chickpea Kale Quiche Pizza.

Mini crust-less pie if you will. Fluffy and also very moist.




We love savory breakfasts!



A 24/7 humidifier, saline rinses, essential oil massages and steam of roasted ajwain water(carom seeds) later, my sinus inflammation seems to be getting better. Though it still goes up and down, and hence the balance moves with it, but hopefully I will get to spend more and more time in the kitchen soon. Or maybe not as it has started to get sunny in Seattle! More time to just sit out in the sun. Though we had a brief snow shower today.. Spring it is. 
Have a fun weekend all!

Millet Chard Carrot Breakfast Bake

Millet Chickpea Chard Carrot Breakfast Bake. 
Allergen Information: Free of Dairy, egg, corn, soy, nut, gluten. Can be made oil free.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup uncooked millet(or 3/4 cup cooked millet)
1 Tablespoon flaxmeal
3 Tablespoons chickpea flour
2/3 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 teaspoon salt
a pinch of black salt(optional)
1/3 cup coconut milk (I used So Delicious unsweetened. Canned will work too)
1 teaspoon olive oil(optional)
1 teaspoon herbs of choice( I used italian blend)
1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
1/2 cup finely chopped rainbow chard or other greens
4-5 baby carrots chopped small
1/2 green chili chopped or chili flakes to taste

other additions: few Tablespoons of chopped onion or chopped Red bell pepper.
daiya mozzarella shreds.
Fresh herbs like basil or cilantro.

Method:
In a bowl, add the chickpea flour, flaxmeal, salt, and baking powder and mix well.
Add the coconut milk and whisk.
To this add the cooked millet, greens and veggies, spices, nutritional yeast, cheese shreds(if using).
Mix well. the mixture will be a thick stiff batter.
Distribute the mixture into ramekins. I used three 3.5 inch ramekins. Use a spoon to even the tops.
Bake in preheated 365 degrees for 20-25 minutes(5 minutes less or more depending on the oven and ramekins used), until a toothpick for the center comes out almost clean. The mixture will continue to cook once out)
Top with favorite non dairy cheese if you like. to get a melty top. (daiya pepperjack!)
Cool for 2-3 minutes before serving.
Serve warm as is or with favorite sauce/dressing.
You can also scoop out the bake, fluff a little and serve as a side, or a millet scramble. topped with roasted potatoes.
The batter can also be cooked as fat pancakes on the stove. Cook on greased pan on both sides for a few minutes until golden and not squishy.

Millet:
Wash and cook 1/4 cup millet in 2/3 cup vegetable broth, or water with added salt and dried herbs.(3/4 cup water if you want the millet a bit mushy). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until well done(15 minutes or so). Mix once in between. Fluff when done.

And in Other news.. Below is a video by Gates notes.. talking about the Future of food and Why plant based is the way to go. Yes, BillG says so.

All the techies out there.. Bill Gates is slowly coming on board.. are you?

You can see his complete presentation here. with charts and info-graphics.  Short video below(no disturbing images).



Gates writes, “Put simply, there’s no way to produce enough meat for 9 billion people. Yet we can’t ask everyone to become vegetarians. We need more options for producing meat without depleting our resources.”

His solution? Companies that produce vegan meats. Products that are delicious but that don’t use any animal products.
Even though his reasoning might seem on point, he is supporting a lot of GMO to get there, which is something I do not agree with. However, there are several viewpoints to each change and any change that reduces the suffering of other living beings is a step in the right direction.

      It will work with quinoa too. the problem with Quinoa is that the quinoa in the exposed layer gets chewy while baking. Sprinkle some cheese (daiya or cashew cheese) on the top before baking, so the top layer doesnt dry out.

    Lovely creamy, savory breakfast! Must give these a go – most mornings I want something on the sweet side, but sometimes…

    Funny – I was just poking through my draft folder and came across a muffin recipe w/ no photos – can’t even remember writing the draft! Crazy.

    Oh this sounds great! I have yet to experiment with millet at all but I really want to. I also really want to buy cute little ramekins like you have here! This ought to get me to do both.

  3. says

    I could totally get on board with this type of breakfast! I could even see making this for dinner! Or lunch! :-)

    I just found a post (written, pics, recipe- the whole bit) that I did almost a year ago and never posted! I don’t think I ever will now because, well, let’s just say Chris’s photography has improved a ton since then. ;-)

    Yes! Millet is awesome, and I’m loving the savory breakfast idea these days. I must admit though, it sounds like a perfectly comforting yet healthy midnight snack, too. ;)

  5. says

    YES YES YES this is sooooo up my alley right now! I have been finding myself not very hungry for breakfast lately, pushing my normal eating time towards lunch and I find myself wanting something savoury when that time comes. This is just perfect and I have everything! Thank you my dear :)

    This looks delicious! I have one question before I make it, though. Is the nutrition information for “one serving” for the full recipe? If I’m making this for me and one other person, do you think this would be good for two or should I double it? Thanks so much!
