Millet is a gluten-free grain providing a great alternative to grains like couscous and bulgur wheat. It's packed with B vitamins and essential fatty acids. Team this with the roasted tomatoes for a healthy dose of lycopene, avocados for protein, and feta cheese for calcium. This is a well rounded and delicious meal that can be served any time of day.

 

Instructions

Pre-heat the oven to fan 220°C/425°F/Gas Mk 7

Place the tomatoes into a small baking dish. Drizzle with a small amount of olive oil and place in the oven.

Toast the millet bread.

Cut the avocado in half and remove the stone. Scoop out the filling with a large tablespoon and place into a bowl. Mash with the back of a fork. Season with a small amount of sea salt and black pepper and then crumble in the feta cheese. Add half the lemon juice.

Add the avocado and feta mixture to the toasted millet bread.

Grate over lemon zest and sprinkle the seeds on top.

Add the roasted tomatoes and drizzle with the avocado or hemp oil and the remaining lemon juice.
