  3. While the millet is cooking, cut the pumpkin in small pieces and cook it in a microwave at max. power for 5 minutes or more ( depending on your microwave).
  4. Take the pumpkin off (it should be tender and easy to break) and put it in a food processor until you get a puree. To make it more smooth you can add a little bit of water to it.
  5. When the millet is almost cooked, stir in the pumpkin puree and simmer til you get a nice mixture.
