faux cereal amaranth With this recipe we want to introduce amaranth, a fake cereal that does not contain gluten and therefore is suitable for celiacs. We are talking about fake cereal because amaranth are the seeds of a plant that does not belong to the botanical family of cereals, but its composition and the possibility of reducing it to flour also allows it to be used in the kitchen as a source of vegetable protein of carbohydrates. Amaranth is a plant with beautiful flowers of a vibrant purple color and beautiful leaves, which is also grown as an ornamental plant.
