Sorghum Chicken Soup with White beans and Kale

WARM YOUR HEART AND YOUR BELLY THIS FALL

It’s officially soup season and we couldn’t be more excited. When the weather gets cold, we are always looking forward to making delicious soups to warm us up and give us all kinds of feels! We used one of our favorite grains, sorghum.  Whole grain sorghum specifically, with its hearty, chewy texture, can be used in place of rice, barley, or pasta. Packed with vitamins and minerals, sorghum is a nutrition powerhouse. Nutrition tip: For a more nutrient dense soup, add dark leafy greens such as kale, spinach or chard.
