  • 3 Tbsp. orange juice (divided into 2 Tbsp. and 1 Tbsp.)
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice (divided into 1 Tbsp. and ½ Tbsp.)
  • 1 Tbsp. ginger, fresh grated
  • 1 Tbsp. thyme, chopped
  • 1 large fennel bulb, chopped
  • 1 medium orange, sliced ⅛inch thick
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp Kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
  • 1 cup cooked millet
  • 1 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
  • 3 oz. non- fat feta, crumbled
  1. ) Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  2. ) In a small mixing bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons orange juice and 1 tablespoon lemon juice with the ginger and thyme.
  3. ) Place the fennel and oranges in a medium-to- large sized bowl and pour the lemon and orange juice mixture on top, allowing everything to soak for about 5 minutes.
  4. ) Pour olive oil onto a baking sheet (roughly 9.5 x 13 inches) with a rim (so that juice won’t run off) and spread fennel mixture in an even layer on the pan. Place the pan in the oven and allow to bake for about 15-20 minutes or until oranges and fennel begin to brown and the fennel is soft. Halfway through, flip the oranges with tongs and add the kalamata olives to the pan.
  5. ) Meanwhile, pour the cooked millet into a medium-to-large sized bowl.
  6. ) Once the orange/fennel mixture is fully baked, pull it out of the oven and allow it cool for about 3-5 minutes.
  7. ) After the mixture has cooled enough to pick up the oranges with your hands, place the oranges on a cutting board and cut them each into 4 pieces.
  8. ) Add the warm fennel and the orange pieces into the bowl of millet and mix gently with a fork.
  9. ) In a small bowl, add the remainder ½ tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon orange juice, chopped cilantro and any of the warm juice mixture that’s left in the pan, and pour the entire mixture over the top of the millet.
  10. ) Add feta and use a fork to mix it all together.
  11. ) Garnish with any left over thyme, cilantro or ginger, if desired. Enjoy!
