It is amazing what one will eat when one becomes a “happy health nut“. My latest discovery is amaranth and I am hooked! Therefore, amaranth is going to serve as January’s entry for your New Food of the Month Challenge. I encourage you to try amaranth in a creamy porridge that smells amazing and will make your belly feel so happy and satisfied.
Below you will find the link to the recipe I used. Don’t be put off by the long cooking time. The recipe requires no prep time and will fill your kitchen with a warm, homey aroma (which will make you understand why porridge figured so prominently in all of those fairy tales). You do need to keep stirring, so it is best to have it bubbling away on your stove while you are cooking something else. This recipe can also be made in a rice cooker, freeing you up to do anything you want as it cooks itself.
The great thing about this recipe is that it is low in FODMAPs, which means that it is perfect for anyone who digestive issues. In other words, you can eat this and not worry about it causing gas or setting off a sensitive system. Amaranth is also a great grain to eat if you are avoiding gluten.
Experiment with your favorite toppings. I tend to be a habitual eater, so my breakfasts usually include some warmed up frozen organic blueberries, some hemp seed and some flaxseed. I also added chopped walnuts which seems to pair nicely with the sweet and earthy flavor of the porridge.
Also remember, bio-individuality! What tastes delicious to me might not work for you. My husband tried it and declared, “it tastes like dirt.” He is obviously not yet a “health nut”!
