It is wonderful to eat a variety of grains. It is good to enjoy the benefits of all the different grains. Here is the great benefits of amaranth. I love having texture in my cereal. This is a great addition to your diet. You can go to health food stores and buy it in the bulk section and try it out.
1/3 C amaranth
1 C water
3/4 almond milk or milk of your choice
2 tsp honey or sweetener of your choice
topping options: milk, cinnamon, fruit
Directions serves 1-2
1. Pour the amaranth into a sauce pan that is on medium heat. Stir and let it heat up. You will start hearing it pop in a couple minutes. Stir a couple minutes until it is all toasted.
2. Pour in the water and let it come to a low boil. Then stir in the milk and honey. Turn on medium low heat and let it cook about 30 min. until the liquid gets absorbed and it thickens.
3. Serve in bowl with milk and fruit on top of it.
