Warm Maple Spiced Amaranth Porridge
Servings: 4
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup amaranth
  • 3/4 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
Suggested Toppings
  • Figs, blueberries, sliced almonds, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries
  1. In a medium pot, bring the water to a boil and add the amaranth
  2. Cook over low heat, with the lid on, for 20 minutes or until most of the water has been absorbed
  3. While the amaranth is cooking, make sure to stir occasionally
  4. Once done, remove from the stove, and add the almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, and coconut oil to the pot
  5. Stir in well, and then serve into bowls
  6. Top with any of the suggested toppings or your favorite fruits, nuts, and/or seeds!
  7. If you're eating alone, store the leftovers in the fridge for up to a week. When it's time to reheat, add some additional almond milk and mix it in so the porridge isn't so thick. Enjoy!
