SHILOH FARMS Amaranth Grain has a pleasing smell and delicate, nutty sweetness that makes the grain as versatile as it is nutritious. Once a staple of early Native American civilizations, amaranth grain has a unique quality in that its nutrients are concentrated in a natural “nutrient ring” that surrounds the center. It combines well with other grains, and can be cooked to create delicious and nutritious soups, pancakes, breads, rolls, and even candy.
To Cook: Sort and rinse. Add 1 part of amaranth grain to 2 ½ parts boiling water. Simmer until tender, about 18-20 minutes. Using a smaller amount of water yields a chewier result; using more water will yield a consistency like mushy cooked cereal.
1. Add about ½ cup of cooked amaranth to muffin and quick-bread batters for a moist, chewy texture.
2. The seeds can be cooked with other whole grains, used in stir-fries, or added to soups and stews as a nutrient-dense thickening agent.
3. The flavor of amaranth is compatible with that of various squashes. Combine cooked amaranth with raisins, nuts, cinnamon, and grated ginger to stuff prebaked winter squash.
4. Toast a small amount of raw amaranth grain in a dry skillet and use as a topping for green salads, casseroles, or noodles.
