Amaranth grain - how to cook it, and what does it taste like?

Peg | Feb 25, 2011 10:45 AM

I'm cooking a meal for someone who can't eat any of the 'usual' grains like wheat, rye, oats, barley... and she is willing to try amaranth (which she'd never heard of but as it's a seed it should OK, she thinks).
I can easily buy it - but have no idea what it tastes like. And apart from a few recipes on the web, have no real idea how I'd use it.
Does anyone out there in Chowland have experience cooking amaranth?
