You may have heard of the ancient grain sorghum, but have you had the opportunity to taste it? Maybe you are unsure of how to prepare this trendy grain?
We love to use sorghum in its whole grain form for its great taste and nutrient profile. Whole grain sorghum is packed with B-vitamins, fiber, protein, iron and antioxidants. Whole grain sorghum can be used in dishes just like you would use rice or other grains. Sorghum is a great addition to soup, salad, sandwich wraps or cooked dishes like risotto or pilaf. Sorghum's taste is neutral, allowing it to absorb the flavors and spices within your recipe, which makes it the perfect versatile option to pair with almost anything you enjoy. Sorghum is also delicious as a sweet dish! Enjoy whole grain sorghum in a breakfast bowl, parfait or sweet porridge. It can even be popped just like popcorn!
Whole grain sorghum resembles bulgar or wheat berries and is a hearty, chewy grain that whether cooked, frozen or made ahead of time, will continue to hold its most pleasant bite. Add it to all of the favorite dishes you already enjoy. Whole grain sorghum is the smart choice to help you reach your daily goal of 2-3 servings of whole grains.
