1. Heat oil in a pot. Stir in the garlic and onions and sauté until onions begin to soften, about 3-5 minutes.
2. Add the rinsed millet. Cook the millet with the garlic and onions until it is lightly browned. Once the millet begins to change color, pour boiling water or veggie stock over the grain. Cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes, until liquid is completely absorbed.
3. Cool the millet for a moment. Than combine the millet, tofu, greens, tamari and cayenne in a food processor. Process until consistency is to your liking.
