    Step-by-step guide to cooking Amaranth

    *½ cup dry Amaranth = one serve (makes nearly 1½ cups cooked)

    1.    Rinse thoroughly to remove any of the remaining bitter coating on the seeds
    2.    Put 1 part Amaranth* to 2 parts water in a saucepan and bring to the boil
    3.    Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for approximately 15 minutes
    4.    Remove from the heat and let sit for a few minutes before fluffing up and serving

    Amaranth can also be cooked in a rice cooker or the microwave with the same ratio of Amaranth to water and takes about the same amount of time.

    Once cooked, there are endless possibilities for its use, from the most simple side dish to a base for a casserole or stew. You can also make a delicious salad by mixing it with your favourite roast veggies, or add it to a hearty soup. Amaranth can easily be substituted in any dish that asks for rice or couscous or make a yummy warm breakfast by simply add nuts, coconut sugar and fresh berries with a sprinkle of cinnamon!!!
