I can’t say enough about Amaranth. It’s easy to cook, full of magical things good for your entire body and the only (pseudo) grain that actually has Vitamin C in it. It’s a great source of lysine, an important amino acid with protein content comparable to that of milk, but more easily digested.
I said pseudo grain cause it’s technically not a grain at all, as it’s not part of the Poaceae family. You know what I call that? Pure discrimination. Everything about it is cries grain, yet just because it grew up with its brothers from another mother, it has to suffer. Well I say, not on my watch. Though on a side note, if amaranth were a character in Game of Thrones, it would be Amaranth Snow. That’s just a fact.
Also makes a great breakfast porridge!
