Vegan Sorghum Salad

I know you’ve got Halloween popping up in your face tomorrow with more sugar and chocolate then you’d like to see. Am I right?

Thought so.

Well, if you’re going to treat yourself to some sweet goodies tomorrow, you’ll want to fill your belly up with some whole grains, fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. And even if you’re not partaking in any Halloween goodies, you’ll still want to fill up on this sorghum salad.

Trust me.

It’s a keeper.


I thought of this recipe back in the summer when I was making a few summer salads and I thought ahead to the Fall when I often crave more fresh greens and salads before the chilly winter sets in. And the idea for this sorghum salad popped into my mind. The highlight? Well, the rye croutons from Canyon Bakehouse, of course.

I haven’t had rye bread in about 20 years. I kid you not.

Deprived? Maybe.

But I haven’t seen any gluten-free rye bread (okay I live under a rock in biggest city of the world) and I had no idea this existed. Then again, I just discovered Taylor Swift and her feel-good music about 6 months ago, too. So, don’t judge. It’s all a part of my healing process where I’m coming out of 10 years of chronic illness and starting to taste flavor and feel an amazing energy come over me each and every day.


So, today I’m combining my energy and love in this vibrant salad. You’ll want to make it tonight and then again next week so prepare yourself. And stock up on rye bread, because these croutons – are TDF….. (to die for).


(And have a Happy Halloween).
