This tiny grain packs huge nutritional value. Amaranth is a gluten-free grain that’s been enjoyed as a staple food for centuries among ancient Mexican and Aztec civilisations, and is still famed for its nutritional powers to this day. Thanks to Kitchen Garden, you can sprout your own amaranth grain at home and use it to create wholesome gluten-free goodies. Amaranth tastes great and is so filling – plus it’s high in protein, fibre, B vitamins and essential minerals. Simply soak your organic Kitchen Garden amaranth seeds in filtered water until they have sprouted, to maximise their nutritional potential.

  • Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a skillet. Drop 2Tbsp of the amaranth batter per serving into the hot oil. Cook & turn until golden-brown on both sides.

Please Note: This product consists of the sprouting seeds only; sprouting jars & stand are not included. You will need a full standard sprouting kit to grow your seeds.

  • Amaranth is not recommended for sprouting in jars. Grow on a sprouting mat, with regular misting.
  • Keep your growing sprouts in natural light but never in direct sunlight. Rinse your seeds 2-3 times a day in cool water. The water should be rinsed clear.
  • Harvest within 2-3 days of the “tails” and/or greenery appearing from the seeds.
  • Drain the sprouts well & leave 2-4 hours to dry, before transferring to an airtight, covered storage container.
  • Enjoy your sprouts in 3-7 days; keep them refrigerated in an airtight container. Start sprouting new seeds every 2- 3 days for a continuous, fresh supply.

Top Tips:

  • Never eat sprouts that have started to smell bad.
  • Always wash your containers thoroughly between plantings.
  • Remove any broken or damaged seeds before you start sprouting.
  • Double rinsing is recommended for beans & legumes.
  • Never eat sprouted soy beans with brown spots.
  • Unsprouted seeds should be stored in an airtight container in a cupboard. The germination life of seeds is generally 2-5 years.
