Butternut Amaranth Bisque

Updated: Apr 4

Butternut squash is available year-round, so why limit it to just Fall cooking and recipes? This delightfully light and delicate bisque is an excellent appetizer or main dish and cooks in just 20 minutes. It's a great source of fiber and is totally vegan. If you're unfamiliar with amaranth, it is a pseudo-grain or seed-grain. It is totally gluten-free and one of the smallest seeds-grains out there. It is prized for its subtle earthy flavor and texture when cooked.

Amaranth, when cooked has a creamy texture similar to farina, grits or cream-of-wheat.
