10 Slow-Cooker Sorghum Recipes You’ll Love


Autumn is here! What better time than now to pull out your slow cooker and begin preparing your favorite fall one-pot meals. Sorghum is an excellent whole grain to add to your slow-cooker recipe box.

Not only is sorghum a good source of dietary fiber and protein, it’s naturally gluten free, energy-filled and helps support digestive health. Plus, it’s extremely versatile and can be incorporated into a vast variety of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Sorghum makes a great addition to your slow-cooker creations because it absorbs the spices and flavors added to the pot. Plus, sorghum holds its consistency without getting soggy. These two attributes combine to create an amazing flavor profile and a unique mouthfeel. Using sorghum in a slow cooker provides the convenience of preparing home-cooked meals even when you are busy. All you have to do is prep your dish, set-it and walk away! Let’s explore how to incorporate sorghum into a variety of slow cooker recipes.
