Mixing It Up

In the blink of an eye we’ll be complaining about how hot it is… until then let’s cook something.

Amaranth grain is gluten-free, packed with protein, a great source of magnesium and iron and is very filling. It can be challenging to cook, easily turning to a glue like consistency.

Quinoa is everywhere and for good reason, it’s a fantastic plant source protein, a gluten-free seed often assumed to be a grain that’s packed with fiber.

Cooking quinoa and amaranth together gives you the fluffiness of quinoa with the added nutty flavour of amaranth. The combo goes well with flavourful sauces, seasonings and of course added to a salads.

Quinoa Amaranth Combo

1/2 cup organic quinoa
1/2 cup amaranth
1-2/3 cups filtered water
mineral salt to taste

Place water, grains and spices in a pan, bring to a boil then turn down to a high simmer for approximately 20 minutes or until grains reach desired consistency.
