Gluten-Free Apple Walnut Amaranth

Rinsing and soaking grains such as amaranth for a few hours the night before or overnight will help reduce cooking time. To save time in the morning, you can combine all ingredients except the walnuts in a covered saucepan the night before, store in your refrigerator and cook in the morning. Store leftover grain in a glass bowl and freeze for a busy morning.

1 cup amaranth, dry
3 cups unsweetened soy milk*
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 large apple, diced, with skin
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
Pinch sea salt, optional

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. *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.
