"What was once old is new again". So the saying goes and oh so true when it comes to ancient grains. Ancient grains are becoming popular again. Most are gluten-free and all are full of vitamins and anti-oxidants.
Quinoa, Millet and Sorghum are just a few of the ancient favorites. For the cooking show, I chose sorghum because I thought it was the least popular. Sorghum originated in Africa and is still a staple in Africa and India. It has more anti-oxidants than blueberries and pomegranates! Sorghum can be popped like popcorn for a healthy snack.
Rounding out this dish is edamames, slivered almonds, green onions and shredded carrots. Shave some fresh parmesan over the salad and drizzle with a Thyme vinaigrette. This is a delicous salad that can be refrigerated or served at room temperature.
Take some time to try ancient grains in your recipes.
Be healthy & enjoy,
