Say hello to Sorghum
An ancient grain with roots that trace back as far as 8000 B.C., sorghum is seeing a resurgence as demand for non-GMO and gluten-free food grows.
Sorghum is an excellent substitute for those with Celiac disease or gluten intolerance, and can be used to make both leavened and unleavened breads, various fermented and unfermented beverages and can be steamed, popped, flaked or consumed as a whole grain or syrup.
"Sorghum is light in color, has a pleasing texture and tastes similar to wheat, which makes it perfect for use in gluten-free baking," said gluten-free expert and cookbook author Carol Fenster.

Pantry Essentials for Nutritious Homemade Meals
Every parent has been there. It's Thursday afternoon and the kids are asking, "What's for dinner?" Searching for inspiration, you head to the refrigerator, only to realize that the groceries you bought on Sunday have run out or spoiled. But before the panic sets in and you reach for the takeout menus, remember that the solution for a wholesome, homemade meal is right in your pantry - or "Cantry."
"With a well-stocked pantry full of canned ingredients, I know I always have the makings of a nutritious and flavorful meal," said Kelsey Nixon, host of "Kelsey's Essentials" on Cooking Channel and Food Network. "Fruits and vegetables are harvested at their peak of ripeness and canned in just hours, making the can one of the best ways to get food from its source to my family's table. I just open up a can, unlock that flavor and goodness and make it a 'Cantry' Thursday night!"
With canned food staples like canned beans, chicken, green beans and broth on hand, you'll be well on your way to savory meals like Quinoa Chicken Vegetable Salad and Nixon's Pasta Fagioli Soup.
