As the weather gets colder warming dishes are becoming so welcome in my kitchen. But I still love to make the things light and very heavy on the veggies.
This warm cauliflower and amaranth salad is infused with so many wonderful Mediterranean flavors and packs a real nutritional punch.
Did you know that amaranth actually is a seed and it was considered a superfood(don’t we love to hear this word) and a staple in an Aztec diet. Its a complete source of protein, 1 cup of dry amaranth contains 18 milligrams of fiber, 15 milligrams of iron and 28 grams of protein! As well its a good source of calcium, manganese, magnesium, and potassium. I hope I convinced you to give it a try if you haven’t already:)
I really love how everything came together in this dish, I prefer it warm but I tried it cold and it was delicious as well, so Its a great bring to work with you lunch option!
If you will decide to give it a try I would love to hear what you think! I wish you a wonderful day and stay well and warm these cooler days;)
