After a night of dancing in a cloud of herb smoke and shooting several shots of scorpion honey, I woke up dizzy and ravenous. I needed something with sustenance. Complex protein, amino acids and calcium (more than milk) all to make up for the havoc I caused in my system. Amaranth, the stuff an Aztec goddess would eat, gave me the strength to wash my hair finally. Give this “new girl” grain a chance, she’s been around, just looked over for her sexier sister Quinoa. It’s nutty and satisfying and tastes so sweet with honey and fig. The texture is unique, like nothing you’ve tried before it. You can find this grain at any natural food store.
½ cup amaranth, soaked if possible (minimum 8 hours)
1 cup almond milk or water (1 1/2 cup if using un-soaked grains)
pinch of cinnamon
raw honey to taste
cut dried figs
chopped soaked pecans (minimum 8 hours)
