It’s super easy to make. Here’s a loose recipe of how I like to cook amaranth cereal.
HOT AMARANTH CEREAL
Cooking amaranth is a lot like cooking rice when using the traditional absorption method.
Measure out the amount of amaranth you want and add to a pot.
Add twice the amount of water.
Turn heat on high and bring to boil. Then turn down to low and let it simmer for 20 minutes.
I usually go and finish doing something to get ready while this is going on, like blow dry my hair and/or brush my teeth. I know, it’s a bit risky!
And then…check on it, because it may or may not need more water.
If the water runs low and you haven’t hit 20 minutes yet, just add a wee bit more water.
It always turns out perfect for me by the 20 minute mark. It will be the consistency of Cream of Wheat or Cream of Rice.
Top it with something fun.
You could add all sorts of things to your hot cereal, like nuts, raisins, berries, cinnamon, etc. I seem to be an amaranth cereal purist, though. I like mine with just coconut nectar.
Please let me know if you try it!
