Amaranth is one of those grains that A Blood Types do well on…as well as those who don’t handle wheat and gluten all that famously. It is nutty in flavor. For this recipe, I soak the amaranth and chia over night with the water (and leave it out on the stove, covered). Doesn’t take long, maybe 5 minutes at night and maybe the same the following morning. In the morning, I heat up the amaranth that’s been soaking all night on the stove on medium, giving it a stir now and then and make sure it fully develops when it becomes thick and all water is absorbed. If your amaranth is a bit crunchy still, then add a bit more water and cook some more. My original recipe had 1C of water, so you can go that high. I also thawed the cherries out in the fridge the night before as well. If you don’t have time to thaw cherries, put them in the hot amaranth. What a treat! No sweeteners needed.
1/3C amaranth grain
2/3rd C water
