Makes 4 servings


1 cup amaranth, dry

3 cup unsweetened soy milk*

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1 large apple, diced, with skin

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Pinch sea salt (optional)


*Use only gluten-free soy milks; some brands are fortified with calcium, B12 and other nutrients, thus the vitamin and mineral content may be higher than in the analysis provided if fortified products are used.



Place amaranth, soy milk, cinnamon and apple in a 2 quart saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Cover pan and simmer on low heat for approximately 25 to 30 minutes, until amaranth is soft. Top with chopped walnuts and serve.
