Back to Basics: How to Cook Amaranth on the Stovetop
Amaranth is a gluten-free seed grain and one of the most amazing sources of complete protein (meaning it contains all the building blocks of life). It’s one of the smallest grains. It was one of the staple grains of the ancient Incas and is known as “kiwicha” in the Andes today. Besides protein (it boasts 30% more protein than wheat or oats), amaranth is a good source of dietary fiber and minerals like iron, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, and especially manganese.
