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 handful each of chopped parsley and dill
