Recipe Roundup: 10 Carrot-Inspired Sorghum Recipes Perfect for Spring


Warming temperatures, blooming flowers and trees, fresh air – spring is a wonderful time of year. Fresh spring vegetables and ingredients make for a vibrant change in the kitchen. While many types of carrots are available year round, spring carrots are the perfect addition to any recipe. Not only are carrots healthy and delicious, they pair perfectly with sorghum.

Whole grain sorghum is an excellent source of fiber and a good source of protein. The grain makes a great addition to salads, soups and grain bowls. Sorghum is also naturally gluten free and can be milled into flour, which is perfect for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

Pairing carrots and sorghum makes for a nutrient-packed meal for lunch and dinner or a delicious sweet treat for dessert. Here are 10 carrot-inspired sorghum recipes perfect for spring!
