I’ve shared my love of ancient grains with you here, here, here, here, and here.

But one of my favorite ancient grains we haven’t talked much about, is one that I’m totally crushing on these days-sorghum.

Have you tried it?

If not, you’ve got to get your sorghum crush on too, whether you eat gluten-free or not! Not only does whole grain sorghum have a delicious nutty taste, and a lovely chewy texture, it’s a super versatile grain, and has a great nutrition profile too…

  • Naturally gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan. Sorghum flour has recently been tested to be low in FODMAPs as well, for easy digestibility.
  • Key nutrients: Iron, B-vitamins, Protein, and Fiber 
  • Lower glycemic index for better blood sugar control & to help keep you fuller longer.
  • Some types of sorghum are rich in antioxidants which may help prevent certain cancers and cardiovascular disease.

Note: One thing you should be aware of, is that sorghum takes longer to cook than some other ancient grains, so just plan ahead. I’ve discovered slow cooking a big batch of whole grain sorghum, then storing leftovers in the refrigerator, or even the freezer, is the best way to enjoy this delicious & nutritious ancient grain. 

Sorghum flour is also fabulous too, and, this easy 3-ingredient All-Purpose Gluten-Free Sorghum Flour Blend is my “go-to” for gluten-free baking. I think it tastes most similar to whole wheat flour, and has a subtle flavor that goes well with practically anything.

Keep a batch of this easy, 3-ingredient all-purpose gluten-free flour blend, in your refrigerator, for delicious gluten-free baking any time!

Now it’s time to get your own sorghum crush on! Huge thanks to my dietitian and gluten-free food blogger friends for sharing their delicious sorghum recipes!
