Amaranth is an ancient herb used by many cultures around the world as food and medicine. Amaranth is a wonderful food for combating anemia, reducing blood cholesterol, glucose and as well for fighting tumors in the body.
The nutritional profile of amaranth is amazing. These little tiny grains are a rich source of many phytochemicals such as squalene, rutin, Co Q10, linonelic acid, oleic acid, quercetin & phytosterols. Protein content is abundant in amaranth seeds and leaves. The quality of B vitamins in amaranth seeds are far more superior than any cereals you can buy in the store.
Amaranth is also a rich source of minerals, such as calcium, potassium & phosphorus. If you are looking for adding more fiber in your diet, amaranth is one of the best grain. Amaranth is a great option if you want to make a wholesome breakfast every morning for yourself and your family.
NOW LETS JUMP INTO THE RECIPE:
6 tbs amaranth seeds (soaked overnight-optional)
250 ml rice milk
1 Apple (cut in cubes)
1 Banana (sliced)
Blueberry (a handful)
1 tbs chopped nuts (walnut or any other nut)
Maple syrup or brown sugar (as per your desire)
Cinnamon powder (1/3 tsp)
Add soaked amaranth with rice milk into a pot. Bring to a boil and reduce the fire and simmer for 10 minutes or until it's done. You will see a white ring starting to form in each amaranth kernel and that is the sign that it is done. If the amaranth is not soaked overnight it might take 20 minutes to cook instead of just 10.
Place the cooked amaranth in a bowl and add all the fruits, nuts and drizzle with maple syrup and finally sprinkle some cinnamon powder on top.
Voilà, it's done. Enjoy your breakfast, but first give thanks to God for all this provision we could have, for there are so many people in the world who don't have a proper meal to eat. I'm grateful to get this good meal and I hope for all of you too.
