A friend gave me this recipe in an effort to introduce quinoa into our diet. Quinoa is very good for you and it's yummy in this soup. Amaranth was also new to us - we found it at Good Foods in a bin where you only take as much as you'd like. I'm so glad I made this! Leftovers are yummy too. Maybe add more milk if it gets too thick. Also, I used skim milk instead of whole, but I added some extra unsalted butter.
