Pleasure is all mine :) Nice to hear about something I can help with!
1. Fry one large onion in a mix of light olive oil and butter till soft but not coloured, add one good teaspoon of curry paste (indian orange paste not green or red thai paste), cook for 2mins, add a big bunch of chopped amaranth and a handful of skinned unsalted peanuts. Cook till tender and stir in about 2 tbs of cream.
2. Saute amaranth with butter and garlic, add some cubes of feta cheese. Season with black pepper and salt if needed. Fill a few crepes with this mixture and pack into an oven proof dish, cover with a thick bechemel, top with grated cheese and grill till golden. Serve with fresh green salad.
3. Cook a large bunch of chopped amaranth with 1 potato and 1 onion chopped. Mash with a fork, season with aromat and cracked pepper and stir in a heaped tsp of peanut butter (this is a african traditional recipe)
4. Saute one large onion, one bunch of amaranth with one bunch of chopped
beetroot leaves in olive oil till tender. Season with salt, pepper and a dash of cayenne powder and a good squeeze of lemon juice. This dish is best served with grilled fish and fluffy rice.
