So we have already established that I love quinoa. I buy it by the 25 pound bags. I thought I would mix it up a bit & try using another seed that acts like a grain called amaranth. I give it the thumbs up & so does my Mr. Men. I had read that you could pop it like popcorn so we gave it a try. Next time I will try an air-popper because it was a little tricky in my pan. So far as usual our favorite way to eat this is just to pour a bit of honey or agave nectar on top. I found this fabulous recipe that uses popped amaranth & can't wait ti try it. I think it would be such a delightful snack. Seeds aren't just for the birds even though the below kind of looks like it was solely created for our little flying friends. Let's just say the recipe calls for maple syrup so you know it can't be that bad.
Go here to check it out and to find out more about Amaranth.
Next up on the list to try is Teff.
Anybody else have any experience with Amaranth?
