Amaranth is a very ancient grain used by the Aztecs and Incas. Grinding it makes a light and tasty flour. Rich in lysine, its protein content is high quality. There are 60 mg of calcium per 1/2 cup, and amaranth is gluten free. Amaranth has a nutty, slightly spicy flavor, and a sticky gelatinous texture. It makes a highly nutritious hot cereal and can be cooked like any other grain, but becomes sticky when cooked. Can be mixed with corn, onions, and pinto beans.
