Amaranth is a good source of fiber and is vegan. If you’re unfamiliar with amaranth, it is a pseudo-grain or seed-grain. It is gluten-free and one of the smallest seeds-grains out there. It is prized for its subtle earthy flavor and texture when cooked. Amaranth, when cooked, has a creamy texture similar to farina, grits, or cream-of-wheat.
