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.

BBQ Tofu & Sorghum-Glazed Heirloom Carrots with Creamy Collard Green & Millet Pilaf ingredients
  • 1 14-Ounce Package Extra Firm Tofu
  • ¾ Cup Millet
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Bunch Collard Greens
  • ½ Pound Multicolored Heirloom Carrots
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter

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.
