Organic Sprouted Amaranth is a complete protein, and is also high in iron and fibre. Cultivated for 8,000 years and with more than 60 species, it was both a staple and ritual food for the Aztecs. It is a cousin to quinoa, spinach and beets, and like quinoa, is actually a seed (pseudocereal), not a grain.
Amaranth is delightful as a creamy breakfast porridge, a base for grain bowls and as a topper for green salads. You can also incorporate cooked amaranth into your muffins and quick breads for added flavour and texture. It has an earthy flavour, and is a unique alternative to quinoa.
