Amaranth is an ancient grain used by the Aztecs and Incas.  Rich in lysine, its protein content is high quality. There are 60 mg of calcium per 1/2 cup, and amaranth is gluten free. Amaranth has a nutty, slightly spicy flavor, and a sticky gelatinous texture. It makes a highly nutritious hot cereal and can be cooked like any other grain, but becomes sticky when cooked. Can be mixed with corn, onions, and pinto beans. Try popping it like popcorn too!
