While this definitely is not a meal unto itself, popped sorghum is a wonderful (and fun) accompaniment to a movie night. You could also sprinkle it on top of salads, soups and cereal. The tiny kernels of popped sorghum are easy to make and have a slightly sweeter flavor than popcorn. Sorghum has a wonderful nutritional profile, making this a healthy, whole grain snack. Top with your favorite popcorn toppings or check out our Pinterest board for some inspiration. Watch the video below to see just how this is done on the stove top.

- 1/4 cup GF Sorghum Grain
- Toppings as desired
Stove top method:
Heat a stainless steel pot with a tight fitting lid over medium-high heat. When hot, add sorghum grains and cover with lid. Cook, shaking pot often, until sorghum grains begin to pop. Remove from heat when there is more than 10 seconds between pops. Season with toppings as desired.
Place sorghum grains in a clean small brown paper bag. Fold top down to close and place folded side down in microwave. Heat on high for 2 – 3 minutes (varies depending on microwave’s strength). Remove from microwave when there is more than 10 seconds between pops. Season with toppings as desired.
Makes 1 serving.
