I only gave it three stars because the cooking directions are so off, but when I managed to fix the issue it tasted wonderful!
I used the same ingredients/portions...with the exception of adding one small chopped zucchini and only used 2/3 of a large onion. I used vegetable broth (not chicken). I cooked as directed - sauteeing the veggies for about 10 minutes then putting all ingredients in a casserole dish, covered it with foil, cooked at 350 for 30 minutes. When I checked it the grains after 30 minutes they had not even cooked yet - it looked like soup! So I upped the temp to 400 degrees (and also cooked a piece of salmon separately to make a full meal) and left in the oven 20 more minutes. I also put the casserole lid on top of the foil to seal it better. After the 20 minutes it was done and delicious! I thought it may need more spices but it tasted very flavorful (the veggie broth added a nice flavor). I think the veggies may have come out a bit over cooked after cooking for almost in an hour in the oven...it may not be a bad idea to simply sautee the veggies and cook the millet/quinoa on the stove...then simply stir together everything - rather than using the oven at all.
