Amaranth is the powerhouse of all ancient grains (pseudograin), and a highly underused one at that. Not only is it a complete protein but rich in fibre, antioxidants and minerals such as manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and iron. I’m kicking myself for avoiding grains for so many years knowing the benefits now but it’s never too late to make sure this is always in your pantry. I’m using GoGoQuinoa organic, certified non-GMO Amaranth. Even with superfoods, organic is important.
Amaranth has a somewhat sweet taste so the taste can clash in the wrong dish. (Trust me…) But this puffed amaranth breakfast bowl is the best one I’ve made yet!
