  • Summary

    Need some extra energy to get through the day? A bowlful of this protein-rich supergrain topped with a little TLC in the way of nuts and honey should do the trick. You can save time by making amaranth several days ahead, keeping it chilled, covered, and then reheating it with a little extra water.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups amaranth
    • 4 cups water
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • Broken or chopped walnuts, pecans, or almonds; honey or pure maple syrup; milk
