Lauded as “the new quinoa”, sorghum is an ancient grain that has been cultivated for thousands of years. A good source of iron, sorghum is also naturally gluten-free. Red sorghum in particular is highly prized for its antioxidant properties.
Naked, Wild & Free showcases well in both hot and cold applications. When served chilled, we recommend adding an extra ½ cup liquid and cooking for an extra 2 to 3 minutes. After cooking, let stand covered for an extra 5 to 10 minutes before chilling. Slightly overcooking the grains will help counteract the hardening that occurs when they are combined with an acidic dressing or ingredient such as vinegar or citrus.
