Organic amaranth seeds are wonderfully versatile and full of vitamins, calcium, and iron. They can be popped and used as a cereal, in a nutritious porridge, or as a light, fluffy grain to replace rice.

How To Cook

Boiled Organic Amaranth Seeds

1. Put amaranth and water in a saucepan 1:2 ratio

2. Bring water to boil

3. Reduce heat to low

4. Simmer for 15 minutes or until all water is absorbed

Popped Amaranth Seed

1. Preheat a high pot over medium-high heat. 

2. Spread about 1 Tablespoon of seeds at a time as evenly as possible on the bottom of the hot pot. 

3. Wait for the seeds to pop (this should be quite immediate) 

4. Once the popping starts, shake the pot to ensure all seeds pop and the popped seeds don't burn. 

5. Once the popping ceases remove the popped amaranth.

6. Put into a sieve to shake out the unpopped seeds. 

7. Repeat the process with unpopped seeds.
