Millet Brussels Sprouts
Millet Brussels Sprouts Weeknight Society

It’s an indisputable fact: Grain salads are better than green salads. That’s why we love this millet Brussels sprouts recipe from Weeknight Society, a website and free app that plans super-speedy, wholesome meals for the whole fam. Instead of plain-Jane quinoa, it’s made with millet, a healthy (and gluten-free) grain that’s rich in fiber, low in glucose and cooks quickly. It pairs perfectly with tart dried cranberries and our favorite veggie.
