Millet is a gluten-free grain that resembles couscous and complements all vegetables dishes well. Mushrooms are full of zinc to support your immune system, while smoked salmon is a ready-to-use source of omega 3s essential for your brain, heart, hormones and skin. 

Notes: you can also make this dish with gluten-free pasta instead of millet.

Gluten-free, Vegan/Vegetarian (without salmon).
