Millet and Sweet Vegetable Porridge from The Kind Diet

This might be the first time I've tried millet.  I think this recipe is in the superhero breakfast section of The Kind Diet.  Which makes sense, because I had it for lunch and it seemed more like a gentle breakfast porridge, except savory - not sweet like most breakfast porridges - which I actually prefer a lot of times.

The recipe calls for millet, kombu, kabocha squash, celery and onion to be simmered in water until cooked. During the last few minutes you stir in miso, so as not to kill the enzymes.

Very mild, tasty but not bursting with flavor.  I think it'd be even more soothing and replenishing than chicken noodle soup for someone under the weather.

I find that a little splash of soy sauce in my bowl was a good compliment.
