Chef Tip: Rinsing and soaking grains such as amaranth for a few hours before or overnight will help reduce cooking time. To save time in the morning, you can compbine all the ingredients except the walnuts in a covered sauce pan the night before, storie in your refrigerator, and cook in the morning. Store leftover grain in a tightly covered glass bowl and freeze for a busy morning. Thaw the night before in the fridge. Reheat on the stove top.

Makes four 2/3 cup servings.
