From the Test Kitchen

Sorghum is a tropical grass plant that produces a hearty grain. (This grain is actually one of the most widely eaten cereal crops in the world.) The stalks of the plant are rich in sugar and can be made into a delicious, molasses-like syrup. In the American South, sorghum syrup is traditionally poured over biscuits. But it can also be used as a glaze for delicious, savory ingredients—like the beautiful heirloom carrots in this down-home BBQ tofu.

2 Start the millet pilaf:

In a medium pot, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the garlic and spice blend; cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until toasted and fragrant. Add the collard greens; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly wilted.

Add the heavy cream and 2¼ cups of water to the pot of greens and millet; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; cover and reduce the heat to low.
