- Preheat oven to 200°C. Spread 1 cup of millet on a baking sheet and toast for 5 minutes. Bring 2 cups of Campbell’s broth to a boil in a medium pot with a tight fitting lid. Add toasted millet; cover,reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until all the water is absorbed,about 20 minutes. Rinse in a fine colander and set aside to cool.
- In the warm oven,toast pine nuts for 5 minutes or until golden brown and crackling a bit as they are removed from the oven. Set aside to cool.
- Shave the zucchini into long wide ribbons using a vegetable peeler or mandoline. Discard the core. Place ribbons into a colander,sprinkle with salt,and let drain while the millet cooks. Pat dry with a paper towel.
- Whisk together the olive oil,lemon juice,minced herbs,and pepper in a serving bowl. Fold in prepared millet. Add the zucchini,shallot,and pine nuts. Toss to combine. Sprinkle with shaved parmesan. Serve immediately.
- - Pairs well with grilled fish.
- - Dressing can be made in a blender or food processor by combining olive oil,lemon juice,minced herbs,and pepper and pulsing or blending until completely immersed.
- - For the zucchini,if you do not have access to a mandoline (hand slicer),trim the base of the zucchini and shave lengthwise with a vegetable peeler,turning the zucchini at intervals to help maintain stability and shape.
- - Grain Substitution: Salad can be easily replicated with a delicate Grain like quinoa or pasta like pearl couscous or orzo.
