Amaranth Porridge with Blueberry Sauce


I had a quiet weekend; one spent mostly indoors waiting for summer to make an appearance – at least that’s what I tell myself to ease the guilt of not wanting to go out in the rain.
It rained all day on Saturday, and I had to cancel a special outing I’d been looking forward to for weeks.
I unwilling got sucked into hours of watching movies, snacking, reading and napping.

But all was not lost, we had amaranth porridge for breakfast…

The amaranth grain, which has been around since ancient times, is a ‘nutrition powerhouse’.
These tiny grains contain protein (1 cup = 28.1 grams of protein), lysine, calcium and magnesium, and it’s gluten free.

Nutrients are fine and all, but the thing I love most about this porridge is how delectable and warming it is.
Sweetened with blueberry sauce, the tiny seeds have a slightly crunchy texture, the porridge is creamy, and the flavours are just wonderful.

It’s almost like dessert for breakfast, the cure for dreary Saturdays!
