Mushroom & Herb Millet Risotto

Mushroom & Herb Millet Risotto

If you’re a fan of risotto, try this upgraded version made with millet, which is a superior grain to rice for someone who is working on healing. It’s also a tasty grain with a slightly nutty flavor. Mushrooms, onions, garlic, and herbs add healing nutrients and flavor to this meal that is best enjoyed for dinner alongside a leafy green salad.

This recipe comes from Brain Saver Protocols, Cleanses & Recipes, the companion book to Medical Medium Brain Saver. These two essential books about our most complex organ—the brain—dive deep into why people all over the world are suffering with mental health and brain-related symptoms and conditions. Brain Saver unveils the why behind more than 100 brain- and nervous system–related symptoms, diseases, and disorders; Brain Saver Protocols, Cleanses & Recipes reveals the truth about how to heal in even more detail (including cleanses, recipes, supplement protocols, and so much more).

Mushroom and Herb Millet Risotto


  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped 
  • 1 ½ cups thinly sliced mushrooms* 
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 
  • 1 cup millet 
  • 1 tsp paprika 
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme or 1 tsp dried
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano or 1 tsp dried 
  • 3-4 cups Healing Broth or water 
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh parsley and/or basil, finely chopped 
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon sea salt (optional)


Place a large ceramic nonstick pot on medium-high heat. Add the onion and mushrooms and cook for 3 to 5 minutes until softened.

Add the garlic and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low.

Add the millet, paprika, thyme, oregano, and 1 cup of Healing Broth or water. Stir until evenly mixed. Cook for 17 to 20 minutes, stirring every few minutes and adding more Healing Broth or water as needed.

When the millet is cooked, stir in the fresh parsley or basil. Add the sea salt if using and stir.

Serve immediately.

*For the mushrooms, wash and rinse thoroughly with warm to hot water before slicing. Do not use slimy or decaying mushrooms. That’s a sign of oxidizing and aging.

Serves 2-3


  • When you’re choosing between Healing Broth and water for the ingredients, keep in mind that the broth will produce a richer flavor. Store-bought vegetable stock isn’t called for because it’s very difficult to find a variety that’s free of oil, salt, natural flavors, and/or other additives. For convenience, make a batch of Healing Broth in advance and freeze it (consider pouring into ice cube trays for easy thawing) so you have it on hand for recipes like this.
  • While high-quality sea salt or mountain rock salt is an optional inclusion in this recipe, the recipe is more healing without salt. Over time, you may wish to reduce or exclude the salt.
