Step by Step Instructions
Place cauliflower in a heavy 2-quart pot. Top with millet and water. Bring to a boil. Add salt. Cover and simmer over a flame deflector for 30 minutes.
Remove from heat. Optionally, blend to desired creamy consistency.
In a heated skillet, add 2 tbsp of water. Add onions, celery, mushrooms, and sauté until translucent.
Add water and bring to a boil. Season with sea salt and shoyu. Simmer 10 minutes. Adjust seasonings to your taste, and simmer 5 more minutes.
Add diluted kuzu to the simmering mixture and stir as kuzu thickens and comes to a boil. Mix in ginger juice. After the kuzu has boiled, the gravy is ready to serve. Spoon over millet mash on individual plates and serve.
