Soak the millet overnight in double the volume of water. Drain and rinse well.

Place the millet in a saucepan on the hob. Cover with water and bring to the boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes until soft but not mushy. Drain and place in a mixing bowl.

Using a sharp knife, slice the corn kernels off the cob and combine with the cooked millet.

To make the dressing, combine the olive oil and vinegar in a small dish or glass jar and shake well.

Put a bed of millet and sweetcorn in a bowl and arrange the greens, beans, vegetables, and mango around it with a generous dollop of beetroot houmous in the middle.

Drizzle with dressing, sprinkle with sunfl ower seeds, and garnish with lime wedges.

Season with salt and pepper.
