AMARANTH

Super Food Ideas - - IN SEASON FRESH IN MARCH -

is an an­cient pro­tein-packed seed. It is clas­si­fied as a ‘pseudo-ce­real’ as it is nu­tri­tion­ally sim­i­lar to ce­real grains de­spite not be­ing in the same botan­i­cal fam­ily. Amaranth is gluten-free and high in pro­tein, di­etary fi­bre and iron. The seeds can be added to crack­ers (see our recipe on p82) or used to make gluten-free por­ridge. Amaranth flour can be used to make pan­cakes, bis­cuits and pasta.
