Customer reviews - Biona Organic Amaranth 500g


Great - Thu 14th Jan 2016

Lovely combined with rice or quinoa. Fantastic opportunity to try something different. Tasty stuff.

Lovely, earthy flavour - Tue 5th Jan 2016

I'd never tried amaranth before so I wasn't sure what to expect. It has a rich, earthy flavour and is very creamy once cooked. I make it in a salad and it clumped together a bit. However, I think this would be lovely in a homemade burger recipe or perhaps in little vegan 'meatballs', which I shall definitely be trying soon. It's a great alternative to quinoa or buckwheat although the grains are a lot smaller.

Amaranth - Mon 4th Oct 2010

Amaranth is a tiny but rich, oily grain that cooks up in a scrumptious creamy texture. It is lovely cooked together with brown rice, sticks together very well and adds a lovely touch to any meal.
A good ingredient to have for rice ball variations, with toasted seeds and Umeboshi plum!
