Preparation, Uses, & Tips

In baking, combine small amounts of amaranth with other flours. Or heat it in a heavy, dry skillet until the seeds pop, and serve it with milk and strawberries as a breakfast cereal. Or, steam amaranth with vegetable broth and serve it as a side dish with toasted sesame seeds. Steamed or boiled amaranth congeals as it cools, so it must be eaten right away.
