One-Pot Broccoli Millet Porridge

One-Pot Broccoli Millet Porridge

In this recipe, everything cooks in one pot on the stove. Alternatively, you can also make the millet porridge separately in a rice cooker (see method 2 of millet porridge recipe) first, before transferring the cooked millet to a pot on the stove.

To adapt this porridge for toddlers (or anyone on a soft foods diet), pulse the broccoli in a food processor for a few moments before cooking.



  • 1/2 cup (100 grams) millet (小米) washed in a few changes of water until water runs quite clear; drained
  • 1 litre water top up with more water whenever needed
  • half tbsp mushroom seasoning powder to taste; can substitute with other seasonings such as soy sauce or salt
  • 100g broccoli (西兰花) florets
  • 2 tbsp wolfberries (枸杞) soaked in water until plump; drained


  1. Cook millet porridge. Add washed millet and water in a large pot. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for about 20-30 minutes, until the millet grains are tender but still intact. Skim the foam with a mesh strainer in the early stages of cooking if desired. Stir the bottom of the pot regularly. Top up with more water whenever needed during simmering. When the porridge is cooked, season it with mushroom seasoning powder.
  2. Add broccoli florets and cook for 2 minutes. Turn off the stove and stir in the wolfberries while the porridge is still hot.

  1. Such a healthy and comforting everyday treat!

  2. Really a healthy makeover on traditional porridge. Used to make one-pot millet porridge,with mixed vegetables and mushrooms in there. Can also add an egg and make egg-drop millet porridge :p
