First domesticated 6,000-8,000 years ago, amaranth berry was a staple of the Aztecs, representing up to 80% of their caloric consumption. It also figured in their religious rituals. To this day, amaranth grains are toasted, mixed with honey, molasses or chocolate to make a treat called alegría, meaning “joy.” A great alternative for those who are gluten intolerant, amaranth berry boosts the nutrition of gluten-free recipes. It is a complete protein as it has all the essential amino acids, even lysine which is not found in most grains. Amaranth can be popped like corn, added to your rice, or cooked like porridge. Include it in your breads, soups and stews.

Amaranth berry recipes

Amaranth is often compared to quinoa, but amaranth's granules are small and stick together. Adding more or less water into the pot can control this consistency. The amaranth berries have a little pop as you bite down and have a sweet, nutty taste. They can be added to soups, stews, chilis, and like quinoa, can replace rice in many recipes. Check ours here.
