What is Sorghum?

Sweet sorghum syrup, aka sorghum molasses, is made by extracting the juice from sweet sorghum grass stalks. The thick syrup, made popular in the South, is used as a sweetener, often in place of honey.


Preheat oven to 425°.

Cut florets from the head of cauliflower and separate them into small pieces. (Only use 4–5 cups. More than 5 cups will crowd the skillet, and the florets will steam instead of roast.) Peel and slice garlic into ¼-inch thick pieces. Toss cauliflower and garlic with oil and season with salt; place into a 12-inch cast-iron skillet, then place in the oven.

Roast cauliflower until lightly browned, 1520 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together sorghum syrup, vinegar, Dijon, and zest in a bowl for the glaze. Remove skillet from oven and pour glaze over cauliflower; toss to distribute the glaze and let the glaze bubble up. Transfer cauliflower to a serving bowl; top with chopped cilantro or scallions, and serve.
