This rich and delicious veggie stew paired together with nutty amaranth is a terrific choice if you have a hankering for pasta
…but would prefer a bowl of nutritious grains over fiber devoid processed carbs. It’s really remarkable how much it reminds me of pasta. This dish is even better though, because you get the flavor of the saucy veggies full out in every bite. You’ve guessed it – I’m one of those people that likes a few pieces of pasta to a big bowl of delicious veggie or meat filled sauce.
The grains and the sauce take about the same amount of time to make, so get the grains going and then push on with the sauce. The grains can also be cooked in advance, then just warmed up in a pan with some water. Get the full details on preparing amaranth here >>>
I suggest cooking a big batch of Amaranth that’ll last you a few days and storing it separately as I did above. This way you’ll be able to mix and match and create more versatility. Have the sauce alone, as a side dish to fish or meat, over greens or with another grain. You can eat your Amaranth in a variety of other ways too.
