Amaranth w/sautéed pears, nuts and currants
Think of amaranth as a superior alternative to cream of wheat. This ancient grain is everything a bowl of oatmeal ain’t! Unlike wheat, barley and other grains, amaranth is 100% Gluten-Free. Its oil is high in linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid which may help prevent heart disease and reduce inflammation.
You Will Need:
- 1 CUPS AMARANTH
- 3 CUPS WATER
- 1/2 Pear or apple
- 1tbsp Coconut oil
- 1 tbs Grade B Maple Syrup
- 1 handful of chopped nuts and currants
- Pinch of cinnamon & Sea salt
Allow water to boil.
Add amaranth and simmer on medium low with lid on for about 8-12 minutes. Stir Occasionally to keep from sticking.
Check for a creamy texture. When it takes on the consistency of cream of wheat, you know it’s ready.
Add fresh and dried fruits, nuts, sea salt, coconut oil, maple syrup & cinnamon to a sauté pan. Cook on medium low. Add to warm amaranth and sprinkle with fresh fruit or coconut flakes. Heavenly!!!
