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!

  1. Have you tried using arrowroot instead of tapioca and potato starch? I used that combo (sorghum and arrowroot) for some oven fried chicken and it was delicious. I was wondering about using it for bread. Any suggestions or recipies?

    1. Hi Suzette! I have used arrowroot for a few things, but haven’t experimented with bread yet. It sounds delicious with the oven fried chicken 🙂 Gretchen, at Kumquat blog, uses arrowroot in a lot of her recipes-you may want to check out her website to see if she has any bread recipes w/ arrowroot. Here’s the link: https://kumquatblog.com/ If you experiment, I’d love to hear how it turns out!

  2. I have not tried sorghum yet. I like the parfait recipe and I wouldn’t mind trying that one out. Right now the healthy food I’m crushing on is spinach. There are some many ways to incorporate it into your food!

  3. I haven’t tried sorghum yet….I would love to give it a try! My low fodmap diet is in need of some inspiration. My favorite food right now is a peanut butter banana combination broiled and topped with chia seeds.

    Would love to win????

  4. I have used this before because I have a very restricted diet and this is one of the few flours I can use and it’s great for baking! Can’t wait to make that pumpkin bread!

    1. I have been virtually unable to eat for the past 4 months and was just given a list of foods I can eat and sorghum is the only grain so I’m going to have to learn fast. I’ve been wheat-free for 16 years.

  5. Honestly, I’ve never even heard of sorghum, but these recipes all sound AMAZING. I’d most love to try the Greek Sorghum Veggie Bowl. Thanks for the chance to win and for exposing me to an awesome new food to try!

  6. I always learn so much from your blog and blog posts. I have never had sorghum; I guess I thought it was a feed for livestock? After reading this post about the versatility and nutrtional benefits (plus the photos of those sorghum recipes) Iwould love to give it a try! Pinning this!

  7. This looks great EA! I have never tried sorghum, but now I definitely want to! Your Greek Veggie Bowl for the Food Network blog has caught my eye, maybe because I’m obsessed with feta lately. But, I also can’t stop eating Honey Bunches of Oats with Chocolate right now! It’s gluten free too, and totally satisfies this sweet tooth I can’t kick lately!
    What a cool giveaway! I need to buy some if I don’t win so I can try this wondergrain!

  8. Sorghum has been on my list to try FOREVER – all these recipes definitely are giving me the motivation to do so now. I know I’ll be a fan because I love farro, barley, wheatberries, etc. and it seems like it has the same type of texture.
