At TNT we love to introduce our clients to new healthy foods they may have never heard of before! Amaranth is one of those foods. Amaranth is a whole grain that is a great source of protein, fiber and iron. It is a great option for anyone aiming to live a healthier lifestyle, but especially those with gluten free and vegan diets. There are many variations for cooking it, and one of those is this yummy porridge!
You will need:
- 1 cup amaranth
- 2 ½ cups water
- ½ tsp salt
- Bring water and salt to a boil. Add amaranth, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 25 minutes.
This will make 4 servings of amaranth, split into 4 servings and top each one with half a banana, ½ cup strawberries and 1 tsp honey
Exchanges: 2 starch, 1 fruit, 1 free food
