Gluten-free veggie millet bowl

Hi hi hi :) What about having a super easy super healthy dinner tonight? I say yes :) And you? 
Here is some inspiration to make a quick and healthy dinner or lunch. Don't worry too much if you don't have the exact veggies at home, you can always replace the veggies to whatever you have in you fridge. That is what I love about these recipes :) Mix & Match veggies are the best :)
So let's see how to make it:

This recipe serves around 3-4 people.

What will you need:
- 1 cups dried millet
- 5 carrots
- 1 small zucchini
- 1/4 head of red cabbage
- 200 grams smoked tofu
- 1 tbsp coconut oil

Dressing:
- 1 lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
- salt and pepper
- 1 tbsp tamari soy sauce (gluten-free soy sauce)
- 1 tbsp Provence herb mix

Method:
  1. Cook the millet with 2x as much water for about 15 minutes or so (until water evaporates). Add salt and home made broth, if you have. When done, rinse the millet with cold water, so the grains don't stick together. Set aside.
  2. Drain and cut the tofu to small cubes.
  3. Wash and slice the carrots. Wash the zucchini and cut it to cubes. Wash the cabbage and slice it as well.
  4. Put some water in a frying pan and add the carrots. Cover and cook on medium for 3-4 minutes. Discard the leftover water.
  5. In a different mixing bowl mix all ingredients for the dressing. Mix the millet, carrots and the other veggies in a bowl and add the dressing. Mix well.
  6. Serve and enjoy :)
