Surprise, surprise – amaranth is a genus of herbs 🙂 There are tons of species available under this genus. Some of these are plain old weeds but some have great nutritional value as leafy vegetables and even more importantly cereal.
Just got back from an invigorating vacation in Switzerland – yayy! My greatest find during the trip…a friend in an amazing lady, Bhavna. An acupuncturist by profession, she is also a store house of knowledge on health foods. She is the one who introduced me to the nutrition-packed, versatile Amaranth and this allergy friendly recipe is inspired by her. This incredible grain is rich in proteins, fiber and calcium which, makes it a great source of nutrition for those with multiple food allergies.
