Amaranth Soufflé

Amaranth soufflé, olive loaf and sautéed kale with nutmeg. What is amaranth you ask, as did everyone I spoke to, it’s an ancient seed from the Incas and Aztecs. I found a sites online explaining the use of amaranth in ancient rituals where it was mixed with human blood and honey, shaped into gods, baked and eaten. When the Spanish came they outlawed amaranth and anyone caught with even one seed had his hands chopped off. um, okay. On the positive side it’s a nearly complete source of protein.
