Curry Carrot Salad with Whole Grain Sorghum

Here is another salad recipe that contains whole grain sorghum. I found the recipe at Mother Earth Living, and I changed it up a little to use ingredients I had on hand. I used apples instead of raisins, a small, whole white onion instead of green onion and I used the whole can of coconut milk, which was about 1½ cups. It turned out very good and I think it could be served cold or hot.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole grain sorghum
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (13.5 oz) coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 small apple, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 small onion, chopped

Directions:

  1. Cook sorghum with the 3 cups of water and salt until tender and water is absorbed, about 1 hour.
  2. To make the dressing, combine coconut milk, rice vinegar, curry powder and chili powder in a large bowl. Place sorghum, carrots, apples and chopped onion in the bowl with the dressing and toss to combine.
  3. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Makes 4-6 servings.

After this sits in the refrigerator overnight the sorghum really soaks up the curry and coconut flavors!
