Basic Grain Cookery - Amaranth
Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

Amaranth is full of high quality protein and is high in fiber. It can be used in applications similar to polenta as once cooled it will hold together. Makes about 1 cup cooked.

I threw this stuffing together to go inside a chicken before roasting. I used finely diced leek and carrot, but any vegetable could be substituted. Suitable for someone following a gluten-free or protein type metabolic typing diet.
