Amaranth, Golden grain

Amaranthus cruentus

Amaranth is next to corn and quinoa in dietary importance to the peoples of South America such as the Incas. As a pseudo-cereal⁠—grain from a non-grass, it challenges the assumption that grains come from grasses like wheat. It has become a champion staple in allergy-conscious recipes and diets. It has no gluten either. The white to golden grains can be prepared like millet or ground into flour. This impressive plant can reach one meter in height.
