I don't have a good cookbook, but I use millet to replace couscous. The cooking method is different, but the end result is very similar, but with a pleasant, millety taste. You cook milled just like white rice, and I actually use my rice cooker to make it most of the time, and often cook it in veggie broth to infuse flavor.

I'm making this for dinner tomorrow- http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/toasted ... 001622450/ but I will add some edamame and some extra veggies and make it a main dish.

Not a vegan cookbook but, I have The Splendid Grain by Rebecca Wood. The steamed amaranth recipe taught me how to cook amaranth that isn't porridge-like. It doesn't get a ton of use in my house, but anytime I get bored with rice and quinoa, I pull it out for inspiration.

There is a very good recipe for millet in Veganomicon. I think its called Mexican Millet. Its a staple for us when we have tacos.

There is also a new cookbook out called Grain mains. It had many recipes for all different types of grains. It is not specifically vegan, but it has many recipes that are indicated to be vegan or can simply be made vegan.

If you are also looking for baking ideas: I ave heard nothing but positive things about 'Good to the Grain' by Kim Boyce. It is not vegan but might inspire you. Maybe check it out from the library?

I don't have a cookbook recommendation but my favourite way of eating millet is in granola! No need to cook it just add it to the oats while baking. :)
