Amaranth And Feta Phyllo Triangles
Melt 1/2 stick of butter in a skillet and pour half off to save for later. Add 2 chopped leeks, 2 chopped garlic gloves, 4 ounces of chopped amaranth leaves, 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, 2 pinches of salt, and 1/4 cup of water to the skillet and cook over medium heat until the liquid evaporates. Move the ingredients into a bowl and then add 4 ounces of crumbled feta cheese and 2 eggs. Next, defrost 4 16x12 inch sheets of phyllo dough, and cut them in half. Brush the top with melted butter then fold in half, fill with the filling and 3 tablespoons of amaranth each, then fold a corner up into a triangle. Press the end to seal, then brush with melted butter and top with parmesan cheese if you want, then cook at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Sauté 1/2 diced onion and 3 minced cloves of garlic in olive oil for a couple minutes, then add in a teaspoon of lemon zest and 2 tablespoons of curry powder and cook for another minute. Add the mixture to a pot with 1 cup of boiled amaranth, and add in a whisked egg as well. In a breading bowl, mix 2 cups panko bread crumbs, 1 cup parmesan cheese, and 1/2 cup chopped parsley, then form the amaranth mixture into small balls and cover with the breading mixture. Lay the breaded balls onto a tray lined with parchment paper and gently flatten them into patties. Heat grapeseed oil (or peanut or vegetable) in a pan, and then fry the patties about 45 seconds on each side.
Amaranth Fish Sticks
Cut 2 fish fillets into "sticks," then cover them in a beaten egg and then in 1/2 cup of amaranth, making a thick crust by patting the grains on with your fingers. Heat up vegetable oil in a saucepan, and then cook the fish sticks over medium heat.
Everyone loves pancakes, and now you can give them a healthy kick with amaranth.

Separately, mix 1 cup buttermilk, 1/2 cup whole milk, 1 beaten egg, and 3 tablespoons melted butter, then stir in the flour mixture and let the batter sit. Use the batter to make pancakes by cooking them in a pan on medium heat.
