Shell Ridge Farms Micro Amaranth greens are crisp, tender, and have a mild and sweet, earthy flavor and a delicate grassy finish. Micro Amaranth greens are best suited for raw applications as their delicate nature cannot withstand high heat preparations. They have a mild, earthy flavor that complements both sweet and savory dishes, and they are commonly used as a garnish. They can be piled over salmon or pasta, placed in sandwiches, served over quinoa, and mixed into green salads. The entire amaranth plant has been used for thousands of years in Central and South America, and today top chefs are using the small microgreen version to enhance the visual appeal of their culinary dishes. Amaranth is native to the Americas, specifically Peru where it was domesticated between 6,000-8,000 years ago. Micro Red Amaranth was then created in California between the 1980s and early 2000s as a part of the growing the microgreen trend in the United States.
