Hey friends, so recently I’ve been paying a lot of attention to the “color” of my food. I love color!! I love the way I feel when I wear something bright, I love walking into a place & feeling like I’ve entered a rainbow.

NRGY’s Amaranth with Fresh Corn & Chipotle Field Roast Sausage

http://veganalamexicana.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/P9220010-300x171.jpg

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 …
