      I thought this recipe was delicious! I was surprised that the cocunut milk didn't overly sweeten the recipe. It was very easy to cook up and it would be a perfect recipe to serve to my vegetarian friends. I however used it as a side dish to grilled ribeye and mushrooms. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

      This is easy to make and delicious. Thanks for the recipe! I used coconut cream concentrate instead of coconut milk, which made it nice and creamy. For a grain, I used millet cooked with bouillon.

      Pretty delicious. I'd never tried Amaranth before, but when it was on super sale at my local asian market, I gave it a try. My boyfriend even liked this dish. A question? Can you tell me where the recipe came from? I've never had anything like this before. I'm also amazed that there are no herbs used for flavoring. Very different. Thanks for posting this recipe.
