In This Recipe
In a large stock pot, add the olive oil, bay leaves, garlic, and onion. Over medium heat, cook the onions until translucent.
When the onions are ready, add the stock, water, bouillon cube, basil, endive, and red pepper flakes. Stir to combine and let simmer for 5 minutes, allowing red pepper flavor to bloom.
Remove the bay leaves, then add the millet and sausage (if using).
Let soup simmer for 20-25 minutes to let millet cook. Serve with toasted hearty, crusty bread.
