In addition to the baby greens salad blend, this recipe also features 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.
