Amaranth grains can be cooked in a dry skillet in order to pop the grains similar to popcorn.
Almost any type of skillet, saucepan, or pot will work. Simply add 1 or 2 tablespoons of amaranth to the pan and cook over high heat. The amaranth should be stirred or shaken constantly until most of the grains have popped. Like popcorn, some of the grains will not pop, but will become brown and toasted. It is important not to add more than 1 or 2 tablespoons of amaranth to the pan at one time so that the grain can be spread in a single layer allowing the heat to be distributed as evenly as possible. Once the seeds are added to the hot pan, only a few seconds are required to pop the seeds. The popped amaranth can be eaten as a snack, a cereal, or it can be used as an ingredient in other dishes. Although the amaranth seeds pop into a white puff like popcorn, the popped seeds are still very small and can be quite difficult to eat as a snack. It is more often eaten as a breakfast cereal with the addition of milk, fresh fruit, and sugar.
