Multigrain as fuck cereal


So this is trending hardcore in Germany: Popping amaranth.
So basically like popcorn just that you pop the nutritious phosphor loaded grain Amaranth.
If you have never heard of it here is a little nutritional info about it:


So the way to pop it:
You take a sauce pan with a lid, medium high heat. You know its the right temperature when you drop some water into it and it dances around.
Then you drop about tablespoon of the Amaranth in it and let it pop.
If it burns it just means the temperature is too high or you left it in for too long.
You might want to turn on the fan because the fire alarm could go off.
Anyway, after a couple of loads you get the hang of it. It only takes around 15 seconds for it to pop, but you can peek inside, but don't take off the lid fully because your kitchen might just be covered in those tiny little balls.

So. You have our batch of amaranth, heres the recipe:

Ingredients:
1/3 cup popped amaranth
1/4 cup amaranth
1/4 cup Quinoa
1/4 cup GF Oats
1/2 banana
1 tbsp granola (I used cinnamon oat clusters by KIND)
Agave, cinnamon, sea salt
Almond milk
Cashews and blueberries (I used frozen)
to top it.




You take the regular dry amaranth and the quinoa and put it in a pot of 1 cup boiling water.
You wait till its cooked (usually takes around 10-15) minutes, and then Add in the GF oats.
If you feel like its burning just add in some almond milk (not a lot though, you want to keep that nice porridge consistency), and once you feel like its reached a nice consistency add in the chopped half banana and cook it in there for a minute. Add in a nice breeze of cinnamon, a tiny bit of sea salt and pour it in a bowl. Now add the popped amaranth and top it off with the cashews, blueberries, agave, granola and just some almond milk if you prefer it to be cooler. I found this to be incredibly filling, and it is obviously super nutritious and tasty, you can take my word for that.

Good morning,

J
