Description

Grain Type: Organic Amaranth
Uses: Porridge, grain bowls, salad, soup
Taste: Earthy

Organic Sprouted Amaranth is naturally gluten free, with a fluffy texture and earthy taste. It’s an excellent source of protein and contains all 9 essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. This small but mighty seed is also a good source of iron and fibre.

Cultivated for more than 8,000 years, amaranth was both a staple and ritual food for the Aztecs. It is a cousin to quinoa, spinach and beets – think of it as the earthy taste of beets with a texture like mini quinoa.

Sprouting amaranth aids in digestibility, reduces cook time, and enhances its taste and texture. Cooking sprouted amaranth is very easy, simply boil in water or broth.

Amaranth is delightful as a base for grain bowls, side dishes and patties, or as a topper for green salads. Because of its earthy taste, it pairs well with root vegetables and dark leafy greens. If you cook it a little longer it becomes a creamy (not mushy!) porridge, try adding other warm, earthy flavours like cinnamon and nut butter. Swap 1:1 for non-sprouted amaranth, or use in place of quinoa or rice. You can find recipes here.

Sprouted amaranth is delicious incorporated into multigrain breads and sourdough. For the home miller, it makes a delicious, versatile gluten free flour.

Storage & Shelf Life

After sprouting, we carefully dry the grains back down to their shelf stable moisture levels. This means you can store them as you would store unsprouted whole grains – in a cool, dry place.

Once you cook your sprouted grains, they should be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge.

Shelf life: 2 years

    Makes a wonderful addition to my gluten-free recipes when alternating between grains. Mild tasting and pleasant texture when ground into flour.
