how to cook amaranth (the grain)

bigjeff | Jan 22, 2009 06:19 AM

i got a huge bag of it, and tried to cook it a few days ago: 2 part water to 1 part amaranth (which I toasted in the pot first). it took so long to cook (at least 2 hours) and i kept adding more and more water since the grains weren't cooking. in the end, i think its cooked through; all the grains excreted some slimey sludgey stuff which i actually quite delicious. i ended up with a huge pot of porridge which is yummy, but I need a solid recipe. and, I have no idea if it is supposed to end up like this or not.

can anyone help me out?
