Popped Sorghum

Popped sorghum is a popular treat in India. These cute little puffs of whole grain are high in fiber and protein and a fun alternative to traditional popcorn. Sorghum is a gluten-free whole grain with a hearty, chewy texture. It can also be cooked, like rice, and used in pilafs, soups and salads. You can find sorghum in specialty supermarkets or order online at Bob’s Red Mill.

Popped Sorghum

1/4 cup of sorghum

Place sorghum in a small paper bag. Fold down to close and place folded-side down in the microwave. Microwave and microwave for about 2 1/2 minutes or until there is more than 5 seconds between pops. Sprinkle lightly with salt, Parmesan cheese, your choice of spices or nothing at all. 1 serving.

Nutrition Note: 1/4 cup of sorghum makes about 3 cups of popped sorghum which is 1 serving. Each serving contains 8 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein with about the same amount of calories as popcorn (without the butter).
