Ok, let's get started. Here is what you will need.
3 cups of water
1 cup of amaranth
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 to 1 tsp cinnamon - depends on how much you like
1 or 2 tbsp of real maple syrup - depends on how sweet you like it.
The following I did not measure. I just tossed some into my bowl.
In a large pot, add the water and amaranth. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium low, cover and let it cook. In 15 - 20 minutes, check it. It should look really creamy. Add the pumpkin and spices and mix it up.
Serve up a bowl and add the pumpkin seeds, pecans and dried cranberry's. Enjoy!!! It is really delicious and perfect for a cold morning. You can save the leftovers for the next day.
Tip: You can buy amaranth in bulk at Whole Foods. It's under $3 a pound. I can't remember the exact price.
