Avocado, Sorghum & Hemp Salad

If you haven’t heard of the Sorghum, then welcome to the party. This ancient grass produces a grain which is processed much like rice, wheat or barley. Sorghum adds a hearty and nutty flavour to this dish which complements the additional ingredients. Not only a fantastic flavour and texture but Sorghum also brings a wave of health benefits too. It’s Gluten-free, packed full of antioxidants and vitamins and it brims with protein. Don’t even get us started on the environmental benefits compared to other grains too. Place this wonder grain alongside avo, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, zucchinis etc and you can pretty much cancel your next 3 doctors appointments it’s so full of nutrition….. Don’t actually do that, but you get what we mean. It’s bloody fantastic.
