2½ cups low-sodium vegetable broth or water

¾ cup millet

1 cup finely chopped onion

1 tablespoon snipped fresh sage

1 tbsp snipped fresh thyme

4 tablespoon garlic, minced

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg

2 tablespoons white miso paste

¼ cup hot water

¾ cup tomato sauce or ketchup

¼ cup nutritional yeast (optional)

Salt, to taste


In a medium saucepan bring broth to boiling. Stir in millet. Return to boiling; reduce heat to medium. Cover pan, and cook 20 to 25 minutes or until millet is tender.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F. In a large saucepan cook onion over medium heat 7 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding water 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time as needed to prevent sticking. Add sage, thyme, garlic, pepper, and nutmeg; cook and stir 1 minute.

Dissolve the miso paste in ¼ cup hot water, and stir into onion mixture. Stir in ¼ cup of the tomato sauce and nutritional yeast, if using the yeast. Stir in cooked millet. Season with salt.

Immediately press mixture into a 9×5-inch nonstick loaf pan. Top with the remaining ½ cup tomato sauce. Bake 30 minutes or until heated through. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
