Hey friends!! I want to share a yummy dish I made recently, amaranth with fresh corn, oats, onion, Mexican Chipotle Field Roast Sausage & jalapenos. Very filling & spicy! Amaranth is high in protein, calcium & the essential amino acid, lysine. It has been cultivated for thousands of years by native people in North & South America, the Aztec people called it huautli. It is a delicious alternative to rice, quinoa and other grains.
Someone had given me some Field Roast Sausages, and although I usually don’t eat processed vegan meats I also don’t like wasting food, so I decided to pair it with my amaranth. It was a delicious pairing! Since the sausages do have quite a bit of fat & sodium I didn’t use any oil or salt, & it was still very flavorful. Here’s the recipe, enjoy!
NRGY’s Amaranth, with Fresh Corn & Chipotle Field Roast: (4-5 servings)
-2 vegan sausage links (since they have a lot of oil I like to rinse them or dab them down with a towel)
-1/2 a cup of Amaranth and 1.5 cups of water boiling
- 1/2 a cup of oats and 1 cup of water for boiling
-1-2 heads of fresh corn
-1 large onion chopped
-2 cloves of garlic
-1 large jalapeno chopped (optional)
-top with fresh tomato & cilantro
-Cook the amaranth in water for 8-10 minutes. Don’t cover it, if you do it becomes sticky
-Cook the oats separate from the amaranth for 12-15 minutes.Untill soft.
-Cook the onion, garlic, jalapenos, sausage & corn on pan (no need for oil), if it sticks add a little bit of water.
-Add the amaranth & oats as soon as they’re done & stir together for a few minutes.
-Top with fresh tomato, cilantro & avocado. Pair with a big green salad.
-Peace & NRGY
