Millet helps to cool and detoxify the liver. Green beans, lentils and chicken are
generally beneficial to the liver and help to move qi.
1 cup millet
2 ½ cups water
1 tsp. turmeric
2 tsp. cumin
¼ tsp. black pepper
½ cup lentils
1 cup sliced fresh green beans
1 thinly sliced raw chicken breast
salt to taste
Combine millet, water, turmeric, cumin, pepper, and lentils in a medium
saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 40 minutes
or until the water is mostly absorbed and the lentils are tender. Add more water if
needed to avoid scorching the pan.
When the lentils are tender, add the green beans, chicken and salt. Stir well,
cover and simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes until the chicken is cooked
through and the green beans are still bright green but tender.
Adjust seasonings to your taste, and enjoy.
This makes 3 large or 4 moderate servings.
