Amaranth was a staple in the diet of the ancient Aztecs who believed it had supernatural powers. Today, amaranth is revered in various cultures for its amazing nutritional profile.

This ancient grain is rich in fiber and protein as well as being a good source of manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and iron. It is naturally gluten-free, easy to digest and has a mild, nutty malt-like flavour.

To cook, simmer 1 cup of amaranth in 2 1/2 cups of water for 18-25 minutes or until tender. To enhance the flavour, add fresh herbs or ginger root or use half measures of water and stock or apple juice.
For a delicious breakfast cereal, increase the liquid to 3 cups and sweeten with honey or brown rice syrup.
