Step aside oatmeal, there’s a new grain on the breakfast aisle. Amaranth is a naturally gluten-free, rice-like grain that makes for a satisfying and highly-nutritious breakfast. 


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup amaranth
  • Raisins
  • Dried Cranberries
  • Honey
  • Milk

How to Make It

  1. Add 1 cup of amaranth to 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer 20 to 25 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Add milk, raisins, dried cranberries, and honey as desired.
