In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add sorghum and salt, if desired, and return to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium and boil, uncovered, until grains are as soft as you like, about 50 to 60 minutes.
Drain off extra cooking water and serve or use as planned.
For more flavor, cook with broth instead of water.
Enjoy sorghum with cooked beans, stew or chili. Sprinkle with cheese and serve with salsa or any sauce you like.
Use sorghum in recipes that call for couscous or bulgur, such as grain salads or grain bowls.
