This tiny grain - actually a seed - has a rich history dating back 8,000 years, when it was first cultivated in Mesoamerica. The ancient Aztecs relied on amaranth as a food staple and used it in religious rituals, earning it the names super grain of the Aztecs and golden grain of the gods. Use amaranth in porridge, polenta and quick breads. It's a good source of protein, magnesium, iron and dietary fiber.
