So why should you try amaranth?
- High protein per serving (9g)
- High fiber
- Tastes/smells earthy, so it adds variety to your grains
- Cheaper than quinoa
Itty bitty seeds.
I needed something different for a breakfast meal because quinoa at all meals of the day wears on you. Before amaranth, I tried kasha, otherwise known as roasted buckwheat groats. Maybe it's the kind that they had at the co-op, but I could not stand the burnt taste. I haven't tried regular buckwheat yet since amaranth tastes pretty damn good.
Adding cinnamon, flax seeds, almonds, and some of the kasha = breakfast.
