New kid on the block

Oh my god Amaranth! Where have you been all of my life?!
After reading so much about all of the amazing health benefits of this incognito whole grain, I thought I would give it a try. It cooks up just like quinoa, in about 15-20 minutes. However, amaranth requires a ratio of 1 part grain to 2.5 parts water. The grain itself is much smaller and kind of sticks together. I'm thinking these would be great in veggie burgers?

1c Amaranth + 2.5c water
1 Delacata squash, steamed until fork tender
1 small red onion
3 cloves of garlic, pressed and chopped
1/4 raisins
1 handful each of chopped parsley and dill
