Amaranth is a seed that belongs to the Chenopodiaceae family of plants. That's a fancy way of saying that it's a relative of beets, Swiss chard, spinach, and quinoa. That means that it has more in common with these power house foods than it does with cereal grain foods. So, like quinoa and millet, amaranth is not technically a grain, but it's usually used as one. It has a nutty flavour similar to buckwheat.

Amaranth can be simmered to get it to a porridge-like texture. Or, it can be combined with other grains if you desire a more "rice-like" dish. It can even be popped on the stovetop like popcorn.
