How to cook amaranth? I hear that is is a healthy whole grain.
I'm not really sure but I have heard that this is good to use in Gluten Free foods and that it's a good source of protein. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
We eat lots of amaranth in Mexico. It is eaten raw, no need to cook it. I always eat it with yoghurt, fruit and nuts or in bars (amaranth mixed with honey as ”glue" or amaranth-chocolate bars).
I've seen it used as a rice replacement in stir fry, where you pour the contents of your pre-cooked stir fry on top of freshly boiled amaranth.
I heard that you can use it in certain breads and pancakes or eat it raw, as well.
To boil, use 1 cup of amaranth seeds in 2.5 cups of water for 18-20 minutes, but be sure to not overcook 'em because it will end up being real sticky, gummy or whatever, if ya do.
I suppose it could also be used to replace pasta in certain cuisines, not just rice, but I don't really know a whole lot about this grain other than the fact that it is considered to be highly nutritious.
