Raisin and Nut Studded Amaranth Cereal

How to Make Raisin and Nut Studded Amaranth Cereal Recipe - Amaranth is a very nutritious high-protein grain and is used in soups, stews and sweet dishes, or can be ground into flour for use in pastas and baked goods. In this homey breakfast dish, the amaranth retains its crunchy texture, and its nutty flavor is further emphasized by the addition of pine nuts.



3 cups (750 ml) low-fat milk
1 cup (250 g) whole-grain amaranth
1/4 cup (50 g) soft brown sugar or maple sugar
2 teaspoons (10 ml) finely grated orange zest, plus extra to garnish
2 teaspoons (10 ml) finely grated lemon zest, plus extra to garnish
1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) ground cardamom
2 tablespoons (30 ml) pine nuts
1/3 cup (40 g) raisins, plus extra to garnish
1/2 teaspoon (2 ml) vanilla extract

1 Combine the milk, amaranth, sugar, orange zest, lemon zest and cardamom in a large saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 35 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the amaranth is tender.

2 Remove from the heat and stir in the pine nuts, raisins and vanilla. Spoon the cereal into serving bowls or glasses and garnish with the extra zest and the raisins. Serve at room temperature, or refrigerate if you prefer and serve chilled.

AMARANTH is a very good source of fiber. Cultivated since ancient times, amaranth is also rich in magnesium, iron and the amino acid lysine (which is rare in plant sources). Most major supermarkets now stock amaranth and you’ll also find it in health food stores.
