“I eat a lot of vegetables and am always looking for new ways to eat them and to serve them. This is a great recipe, and we love corn.” Wanda S.
Amaranth is a grain that is very high in protein. It has a slightly sweet flavor, and when popped, it can be used in salads and vegetables. Popping it, as done in this recipe, is really very easy to do. Look for amaranth among the other whole grains in the natural-foods section of your grocery store or co-op.
