BAKED EGGS WITH PURPLE AMARANTH


Author Notes: Amaranth works very well in this recipe, party because they have a slight bitterness to them when cooked, which works beautifully with the creaminess of the still slightly runny eggs.

Very quick to rustle up and makes for a great simple meal with a side of crusty bread.
