Nutritional values

This dish is ready in 20 minutes and full of essential nutrients. Figs and cranberries provide fiber, minerals and B vitamins. Millet has a significant portion of silicic acid, which ensures beautiful skin and strong nails. In addition, the cereal scores points with plenty of protein and iron. This makes millet particularly beneficial for vegetarians and vegans, who easily miss out on this trace element.

Served warm, this sweet millet is a perfect to start the day, or even a healthy dessert.
