Not only is this unique recipe easy to create, but it also contains sorghum, which is one of our favorite grains to cook with. Sorghum is rich in flavor, and it’s also a great nutrition booster because it’s a good source of whole grains and protein, which will help satiate while providing exceptional flavors. This makes sorghum the perfect grain to have in your kitchen, as you can batch cook it, store it, and add it to soups, salads, or muffins later on in the week. While this recipe features cooked sorghum, it also highlights sorghum syrup, a natural sweetener that adds an earthy flavor to complement the sweetness of the strawberries and vanilla. It also enhances the sorghum taste while providing nutrients like iron, calcium, and potassium. So, go ahead and make sure that this breakfast is on repeat–it’s one that your whole family is sure to fall in love with!
