Millet and water in an Instant Pot

Instant Pot Millet

Cooking millet in the Instant Pot is our preferred method because it’s fast, fluffy, and not mushy!

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Ratio = 1 part millet : 1 ¾ parts water
  • Cook Time = 10 minutes
  • Release = 10 minute natural release, then release any remaining pressure

Millet is great for adding to stir fries, bowls, salads, and more! It also goes well with nearly any main, including curries and soups.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add millet and water (or vegetable broth) to the Instant Pot and stir to prevent sticking. Pressure cook on high for 10 minutes (it will take about 8 minutes for the Instant Pot to pressurize before cooking begins).
  • Once the timer goes off, allow to naturally release for 10 minutes, then release any remaining pressure. Carefully remove lid once steam has fully escaped.
  • Enjoy immediately in stir fries, bowls, salads, or as a side to nearly any main. Store cooled leftovers in the refrigerator up to 5 days or in the freezer up to 1 month. Reheat in a skillet on the stovetop, adding oil or coconut aminos, as needed, to prevent sticking.
