Colorful leaves, cooler weather and warm flavors like cinnamon and nutmeg can only mean one thing - fall! Autumn is a wonderful time of year to get creative with a variety of flavors in the kitchen, and sorghum is the perfect catalyst to capture these delightful tastes of fall. The smells accompanied with these wonderful flavors will also make your home feel warm and welcoming to others as the fall season arrives!
Typically around this time of year, as the holidays and the cooler seasons approach, we tend to start eating a little unhealthier. Grundy MD indicates that most Americans gain approximately five pounds in as little as two months due to overeating during the holiday season. Sorghum is a great way to eat healthy while still getting to enjoy autumn flavors and recipes you love! Whole grain sorghum is an excellent source of fiber and a good source of protein. The super grain also has a low to mid-glycemic index, which doesn’t cause a large spike in blood sugar and helps you feel fuller longer (a great benefit for the holiday season). Sorghum is also an out-of-the-box grain that adds creativity to your culinary creations. This versatile grain can be cooked in many ways and included in everything from soups and salads to hearty pilafs and risottos. Sorghum’s neutral, nutty flavor pairs perfectly with spices and fall favorites like sweet potatoes, pumpkins, butternut squash and pomegranates.
Indulge in the guilt-free flavors of fall with these autumn-inspired sorghum recipes.
