There are grains, and then there’s Amaranth. Along with buckwheat and quinoa, Amaranth is one of the few plant sources to offer a complete set of amino acids, making it a rare plant source of complete protein. It’s naturally gluten-free and a good source of protein and fiber.

Living Now™ Organic Amaranth is perfect for making gluten-free pasta, but should be combined with other grains/flours for baked goods since it has no gluten and will not rise on its own. Amaranth has a mild flavor that’s both sweet and nutty, and it’s a popular addition to many vegetarian recipes.

Basic Cooking Instructions:

1 cup of NOW Organic Amaranth
2 1/2 cups of water

1) Combine Amaranth and water into a pot.
2) Bring to a boil then cover with tight fitting lid.
3) Reduce heat to low and allow Amaranth to simmer for 20 minutes or until grains are fluffy and water absorbs.

***Tip: If you would like to turn this mixture into an amaranth porridge add another ½ cup of water and cook for an additional 7-10 minutes***
