Sorghum has a hearty, slightly sweet flavor and chewy texture. It can be used for many recipes from porridge, to salads and side dishes, to baked goods. When ground into flour, sorghum is a wonderful substitute for whole wheat flour in gluten-free baking and can be used to make breads, muffins, cookies or pancakes.

Sorghum, like other whole grains, has many health benefits. It supports a healthy heart, bone health, beautiful skin and helps keeping your digestive system healthy thanks to its high amount of fiber. It’s also a great source of energy, antioxidants and is gluten-free.

Today I’m introducing you to a simple and delicious recipe for bouza. Bouza is a Tunisian-inspired sorghum pudding made with ground sorghum, hazelnuts and sesame paste. It can be served thick like a pudding for dessert or breakfast, or thinned for a creamy beverage. It cooks in just one pot in about 30 minutes making it a simple recipe that’s tasty and unique!
