Fall is here! The days are cooler, leaves are changing color and crop harvest is in full swing. This calls for a cuisine change in the kitchen. It’s time for hardy side dishes with aromas that fill your kitchen, warm soups that chase away the coolness outside and entrees filling for the entire family. You can add in the fall bounty with healthy, everyday sorghum meals.
Whole grain sorghum is the perfect choice for fall. Sorghum has a neutral, nutty flavor, which allows it to absorb recipe flavors and spices. This super grain also has a unique mouthfeel that adds a hardy component to dishes. What’s more is sorghum is packed full of nutrients like protein, fiber, phosphorus, iron and magnesium. Sorghum contains 10 percent protein, nearly 75 percent complex carbohydrates and is rich in B?complex vitamins to help you feel fuller longer and power you through chilly fall days.
Cooking Tip: Cook a bulk batch of sorghum and freeze or refrigerate to add convenience in the kitchen. When you are ready to use your sorghum, easily use it in your side dishes in minutes.
Cooking Tip: Cook a larger batch of your favorite sorghum soups. Then divide the soup into separate containers and freeze for easy meals later.
Cooking Tip: Prepare your sorghum in a pressure cooker to cut cooking time in half. For directions, click here.
