Matthew Said:does Amaranth have a strong flavor, compared to most other grains?
We Answered:The grainy product has a malty, slightly sweet taste with nutty undertones and can be prepared much like a porridge similar to oatmeal.
Used alone or mixed with other whole grains, it makes a delicious breakfast cereal especially when drizzled in maple syrup and a little cinnamon. It can also be used as an ingredient in bread making, but needs to be combined with other flours to give a soft, risen bread since it lacks gluten. It can be used in the absence of other grains to create flatbreads and crackers which don't need to rise. Organic amaranth makes a good rice substitute and can be made into pilafs or used as a soup thickener. An unusual way to prepare amaranth is to pop it in a skillet like popcorn. The popped grains have a similar taste to Rice Crispies and can be eaten as a snack or served as a cereal.
Melissa Said:What the difference between quinoa and amaranth?
We Answered:Quinoa is a small grain that was made popular by the Incas in South America. It comes in a variety of colors, and once cooked has a small beige ring around it (like it popped open). It is very soft once cooked and taste very nutty.
Amaranth is another small grain that was made popular by the Aztecs. It is usually beige in color and is a little bit smaller than quinoa and has a chewy (a very little chewy thing) texture (not very soft).
I make a power porridge in which I have quinoa, amaranth, and millet (another small tiny grain that is good for you). 2 to 1 ratio of water to grain when cooking it the grains at the same time. In which it is the most nutritious to keep them grains, and not processed into flakes. Flakes may become soggy once you put on the soy milk and then heat them up? Eat it just like cereal with cold soy milk, and then go look in the Bob's Red Mill section of the grocery market for a package of whole grain amaranth and quinoa and millet.
Jessie Said:Why do they burn the angel in the the Nightwish music video of Amaranth?
We Answered:Well the music video was actually based off of a famous Finnish painting, called "The Wounded Angel".
The symbolism in the music video is probably open for interpretation (the artist to the original painting steadfastly refuses to say anything about it, claiming that its different for everyone). I think that it represents most of the people in the world refusing to accept some things that which are beyond our line of reasoning. And when they were confronted with cold, hard evidence, they sought to destroy it by twisting it into something evil.
Either way, I agree with the above answer - Nightwish is a fantastic band!
