Amaranth can be prepared as a nutritious porridge and served with fresh fruit and yoghurt for a great start to the day. Or soak overnight with millet and buckwheat grain before blitzing into a delicious pancake batter.
To cook, simmer 1 cup of amaranth in about 2 ½ cups of water for 18-25 minutes or until tender. To enhance the flavour in your dish, add fresh herbs or ginger root, or you could choose to substitute some water for stock or apple juice.
