Sorghum Stuffed Peppers

Sorghum Stuffed Peppers

Sorghum is the new rice! This ancient whole grain is not only full of nutritional benefits, but also entirely gluten free. Sorghum is wonderfully versatile; the flour is great for baking and the whole grain can be popped into the most adorable mini popcorn. In this case, we opted for a tasty risotto stuffed into oven roasted peppers. 

6 Peppers

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 Bell Peppers
  • 1½ Cups Sorghum
  • 2 Cans Crushed Tomatoes
  • 4 Cups Vegetable Broth
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • Fresh Basil

  • Cayenne
  • Coriander

  3. Scoop out the seeds and interior membranes.
  4. Place bell peppers on an oven tray and lightly drizzle with rapeseed oil.
  5. Roast for 20–30 minutes in the oven while preparing the sorghum risotto.
  6. Bring vegetable broth to boil in a saucepan, then reduce to a simmer.
