Rinse well in water before cooking. For every cup of amaranth, use 2 ½ cups of water, vegetable or bone broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for approximately 20 minutes until grains are fluffy and water is absorbed. Use as a delicious porridge or in stews and casseroles. Like popcorn, amaranth can also be popped for a healthy snack.
