Yield: 2 servings

Amaranth breakfast with bananas, marula nuts and maple syrup


  • 90g amaranth grain
  • 200 ml water
  • Fresh fruit
  • A handful of marula nuts
  • 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Oil
  • Milk (optional)
  • Cinnamon (optional)


  1. Soak the amaranth in a bowl with enough water and leave overnight.
  2. The following morning, rinse the amaranth under the tap (in a colander) and drain.
  3. Add the amaranth and 200ml of water to a pan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low, cover the pan and let it simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, cut up your fruit (if required) and chop the marula nuts.
  5. Toast the nuts briefly in a frying pan.
  6. Remove the amaranth from the heat and let it stand for about 10 minutes so that it thickens into a porridge.
  7. You can then add some milk to it (to make it thinner or for the taste) and a little cinnamon and stir well.
  8. Divide the porridge over two bowls. Sprinkle fruit and nuts over it and drizzle with a little maple syrup.
  9. Enjoy your breakfast!
