What it is:
Amaranth has a rich history dating back 8,000 years when it was first cultivated in Mesoamerica. It is a gluten-free food and an excellent source of protein and iron, making it a perfect ingredient for vegetarian/vegan diets.
The grains - actually seeds - contain all the essential amino acids, including lysine, which is lacking in most grains.
Enjoy this sweet, earthy, gluten-free grain extremely high in protein, magnesium, iron, and fiber by adding it into your cereal, side dishes, entrees, and baked goods.
How To Use
• Amaranth can be roasted, popped, boiled, and added to other dishes, making it a versatile pantry item to add into your daily diet.
• To cook amaranth, simmer it in liquid, just like rice or other whole grains. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for up to 20 minutes, until grains are fluffy and water is absorbed.
• Cooked amaranth has a texture similar to quinoa, but it’s a bit finer. Popped amaranth can be enjoyed on its own or served with milk or soy milk and fruit for a healthy breakfast.
