EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

*To pop amaranth, heat nonstick skillet over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons amaranth at a time to the hot skillet; cook 30 to 60 seconds, stirring constantly with wooden spoon, until grains begin popping. Watch closely to prevent burning, and remove from heat as soon as amaranth is popped.

Amaranth is high in fiber and low in saturated fat. The grain can be popped like popcorn, flaked like oatmeal or ground into flour.
