  • cups cooked millet
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 8 gluten-free whole-grain tortillas corn-free
  • 1 large ripe avocado pitted, peeled, and thinly sliced
  • 4 scallions thinly sliced
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Portobello Mushroom and Red Bell Pepper Filling:

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large portobello mushroom cut into 8 slices
  • 1 large red bell pepper cut into long strips
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch chipotle powder
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced radish for garnish (optional)


  • In a small bowl, combine the millet, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Stir to combine and set aside.
  • In a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the mushrooms in a single layer. Cover and cook for 4 minutes, then flip and cook for 2 minutes more. Add the bell pepper, cumin, salt, black pepper, chipotle powder, and remaining oil, if needed. Cook for 5 minutes or until vegetables are cooked through, stirring often. Garnish with the radish. Keep warm.
  • To assemble, warm the tortillas on a baking sheet in a 350°F oven or in a dry skillet on the stovetop over medium heat. Place the warm tortillas on a platter or on individual plates. Divide the millet among the tortillas. Top each with the Portobello Mushroom and Red Pepper mixture. Top with the avo­cado slices, scallions, and salt and pepper to taste.
