Author Notes: This is the perfect breakfast; warm and comforting, creamy, packed with flavor and nutrients and oh-so-dreamy. If you've never tried amaranth before then this is the recipe for you. It's easy to make and I guarantee it'll become one of your new favorite breakfasts.
Although this is called porridge it's actually rather thin, but if you'd like it to be thicker add some rolled oats at the beginning of the cooking process. Either way I promise it'll taste great.
This can also be chilled and served as a dessert.
