Cooked amaranth, berries, maple syrup, cinnamon and a splash of rice milk so much better than oatmeal!! This has become a staple for me on this Elimination Diet. I cook up a big batch of amaranth. Then, throughout the week I can put this together in under 5 minutes. Great for a quick breakfast or yummy filing desert. I love the "pop" of the amaranth! I use the 3 berry frozen mix from Costco. Frozen fruit is a must for me as I am doing this diet in the middle of winter. Use whatever non-dairy, non-soy milk you choose. I like rice milk. Adjust the toppings to your liking. Time to cook does NOT include the cooking of the amaranth. AMARANTH: This grain cooks up soupy. Don't add salt to the amaranth while cooking.

I (mistakenly) bought a pkg of amaranth instead of quinoa. I tried this recipe and it is an exceptional breakfast--if you are really tired of oatmeal and cream of white, try this. I made it w/blueberries and have eaten it 3 days and have enough left for 3-4 more. I did use soy milk but don't see why you have to use rice milk. Even dairy would be ok, I'd think.
Excellent cereal dish! I used cashew milk for the milk and a mix of blueberries and sour cherries. Will make this again often! Thanks for posting.
