Nutritional Information

Directions:  Amaranth can be cooked as a cereal, ground into flour, popped like popcorn, sprouted, or toasted.  To cook amaranth boil 1 cup seeds in 3 cups liquid such as water. It can also be used with rice and beans in casseroles or soups. Amaranth flour is used in making pastas and baked goods. It must be mixed with other flours for baking yeast breads, as it contains no gluten. One part amaranth flour to 3-4 parts wheat or other grain flours may be used.
