Meet organic amaranth, a versatile little seed that cooks easily.
Although it looks like a grain, it is actually a seed. The small, round kernels that taste like slightly sweet nuts are delicious any time of the day. From morning oatmeal to amaranth risotto for dinner, this ancient seed is super easy to cook and can be used in so many different ways. For each cup of amaranth, use 2 and a half cups of liquid. The amaranth cooks in about 15 to 20 minutes. Certified organic, vegan, wheat-free and gluten-free, amaranth is a complex carbohydrate. In addition to being an excellent source of fiber, protein and iron, amaranth is a good source of calcium. Unlike many grains, amaranth contains lysine, an essential amino acid, making it a complete protein. Ingredients: Amaranth.
