Don’t let oats get all the breakfast glory, switch up your breakfast porridge routine with some sprouted amaranth. When amaranth is cooked as a porridge it takes on a thick consistency but the grain remains whole, adding a slight crunch. Sprouted amaranth has an earthy, slightly sweet flavour that pairs well with other earthy flavours like nuts and nut butters, or tart flavours like berries.   

Topping ideas:

  • Nut butter
  • Chopped nuts
  • Granola
  • Chia seeds
  • Hemp hearts
  • Fresh or cooked berries
  • Coconut
You can try the recipe with other types of milk but they may scald, and I find coconut milk really helps to give it a thick porridge consistency (and a nice flavour).
