Don't be put off by the look of it...this cereal is full of spice (with just enough sweetness) and very yummy--a different way to start of your day, especially if you're tired of the same ol', same ol' for breakfast.
Popped Amaranth Cereal - from Gluten Free Girl
1/4 c. organic amaranth seeds
1/2 c. warm milk (I used almond milk)
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. ground ginger
1 T. organic cane sugar (I used powdered coconut palm sugar)
1/4 c. chopped dates
2 T. chopped pecans (I roasted my own pecans, here's how)
Bring a skillet to heat over high heat. When the skillet is so hot that beads of water can dance across it, toss in the amaranth seeds. As soon as the seeds begin popping--like miniature popcorn kernels--stir them continuously with a wooden spoon for about 5 minutes.
Pour the warm milk over the popped amaranth. Add the cinnamon, ginger, and sugar, and stir. Top with the chopped dates and pecans.
(Fair warning: the ginger in this is very potent, so if you're not a big fan, you may want to reduce the amount)
