A firm favourite with chefs and homegrowers alike due to its vibrant colour, Amaranth is one of the smaller delicate seeds. Consumed by pre-columbian aztecs, this ancient seed is high in protein and full of important vitamins.
Amaranth sprouts have a mild earthy, nutty flavour while the microgreen is a beautiful vibrant pink/red with similar earthy flavour as the sprouted version but with a hint of sweetness.
Latin name: Amaranthus tricolor
Health Benefits: High in fibre, protein and micronutrients. Good for combating inflammation and high-cholesterol.
