I’m a big fan of sorghum. It is an ancient, highly nutritious cereal grain that has been cultivated for thousands of years. Sorghum is gluten-free, easy to digest and contains a high level of antioxidants. In fact, Sorghum is often called the “supergrain” because of its many health benefits. Today I’m going to share with you my recipe for Garden Vegetable Stir-Fried Sorghum. This recipe is packed with fresh vegetables, and the sorghum adds a nutty, chewy texture that makes it a satisfying and delicious meal.
To make Garden Vegetable Stir-Fried Sorghum, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 1 cup of sorghum grain
- 2 cups of vegetable stock
- 2 tbsp of olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 cups of your favorite vegetables (I like broccoli, carrots, and bell peppers)
- 1 tbsp of freshly grated ginger
- 1 tbsp of soy sauce
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Rinse and drain the sorghum grain in a fine mesh strainer.
In a medium-sized pot, bring the vegetable stock to a boil.
Add in the sorghum and reduce heat to low.
Cover the pot and let simmer for about 45 minutes, or until the sorghum is tender and all of the liquid has been absorbed.
While the sorghum is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add in the chopped onion and cook for about 3-4 minutes, or until soft and translucent.
Add in the minced garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant.
Add in your choice of vegetables and stir-fry for about 5-7 minutes, or until they are tender yet still crisp.
Mix in the grated ginger, soy sauce, and salt and pepper to taste.
Once the sorghum is done, add it to the skillet with the vegetables.
Stir everything together until the sorghum and the vegetables are well combined.
Serve hot and enjoy your Garden Vegetable Stir-Fried Sorghum.
