Healthy Recipe with Sorghum

Slow-Cooker Sorghum Pilaf

Serves 4

Sorghum produces a robust pilaf with lots of texture. For best results, have all ingredients at room temperature when you start the slow cooker.

1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons dried minced onion

1/2 cup uncooked whole-grain sorghum

2 cups gluten-free low-sodium chicken broth, such as Swanson Natural Goodness

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese or soy alternative, such as Soyco

1. Lightly coat the liner of a slow cooker with cooking spray. Add all ingredients except the Parmesan cheese and stir to blend.

2. Cover and, without removing the lid, cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until all liquid is absorbed. Stir in Parmesan cheese and serve.
