Try this new twist on an ancient grain—amaranth porridge with maple syrup, almonds and cranberries. Slideshow: Whole Grain Breakfast Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

Bring the milk and water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Whisk in the amaranth, reduce the heat to low and cover. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is absorbed and the amaranth is tender.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350º. Place the sliced almonds on a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for five minutes, or until just beginning to brown. Remove from the oven and set aside.

Step 3    

Remove the amaranth from the heat and stir in the butter and maple syrup. Divide between serving bowls and top with almonds, cranberries and a drizzle of maple syrup.
