Amaranth Seeds

Amaranth has been used in South American cooking for centuries and is an important source of protein and naturally gluten free.

It is said to have more calcium and magnesium than cow's milk. It can be used in baking, cooking and sprouting and can be a useful replacement for quinoa.

Cook 200g amaranth in 500ml water for 35 minutes. Stir, remove from heat and leave to stand for 15 minutes with lid on.

More Information

Is it a seed or is it agrain? These tiny little seeds are imposters! Amaranth aka love-lies-bleeding is a pseudocereal: part of a plant thats not a real cereal, but which can be used in the same way. And its an ancient plant originally cultivated by the Aztecs. Pseudo or not, amaranth is really good for you: its a great source of gluten-free protein, calcium and magnesium. You can use it in cooking, baking and for sprouting. If you are having digestive problems, trying out amaranth is highly recommended.
