Amaranth is something you must simply try. Besides its nutty flavor, amaranth is one of the best sources of plant-based protein. It's an excellent gluten-free option, and has a lot of nutritional value. Try making it for breakfast, porridge is an excellent choice! This is a great breakfast to make early in the week and store it for a quick and easy meal.
