Healthy foods do not have to take long to prepare – with a little planning you can serve a delicious, healthy meal in minutes! One of our favorite cooking methods is preparing whole grain sorghum in a pressure cooker. This one-pot method saves you time, energy and cleanup. Pressure cookers can cut sorghum's cooking time by up to one-third compared to conventional methods. The good news is that a shorter cooking time requires less energy spent in the kitchen. If you are using an electric pressure cooker, you can set it and walk away! Then add sorghum to your favorite dishes.
Imagine coming home from work to a home-cooked dinner ready to be served. Slow cookers can help make this a reality. Slow cookers provide the convenience of preparing easy, delicious meals ahead of time and then allowing them to cook while you're away. Whole grain sorghum is a great choice for this cooking method, as it holds its consistency well without getting soggy. Prep your dish in the morning, set-it and walk away.
Another quick option to have healthy meals in minutes, is batch cooking. Preparing whole grain sorghum when more time is available and storing it for later use in the week is a great option for fast-paced lifestyles. Sorghum can be frozen or refrigerated and reheated without losing its great taste. This allows for a healthy addition to salads, used as a complementary side or in the main dish for any meal of the day.
