Sweet Amaranth for breakfast

Are you fed up with boring porridge for breakfast? I would like to share my quite simple, a little time consuming, yet delicious recipe for Amaranth "Porridge". It is a very healthy plant full of vitamins such as B, C, E and what is very important on vegetarian diet it is high in proteins. It will easily fill you up and give you a lot of energy to start up the day.
Personally, I prefer it as a sweet breakfast but amaranth can also be cooked salty and used as an addition to meals. The topping is more or less optional, however, I like to add kiwi since the maple syrup is pretty sweet and the kiwi adds a little sourness.


50g amaranth
20ml water
20ml milk
1 bannana
1 tbsp maple syrup


1 kiwi
1 tsp cacao powder
1 tsp flax seeds
goji berries


1. Boil some water in the kettle and pour it over the amaranth. Leave it for 5 minutes, this will remove the intense smell and wash off all the impurities.
2. In a pot bring water and milk to boil and place the amaranth into the pot using a spoon (drain the water from the kettle).
3. Leave it on medium heat for another 20 minutes.
4. Add maple syrup and finely chopped banana . Cook for another 5-6 minutes.
5. Put the cooked amaranth into a bowl and top with fruits and seeds. Sprinkle with cacao powder and done!
