  1. i’ll tell you what’s the same- i don’t know what either one of them are! try a google search! google knows all!

  2. Quinoa is a small grain that was made popular by the Incas in South America. It comes in a variety of colors, and once cooked has a small beige ring around it (like it popped open). It is very soft once cooked and taste very nutty.
    Amaranth is another small grain that was made popular by the Aztecs. It is usually beige in color and is a little bit smaller than quinoa and has a chewy (a very little chewy thing) texture (not very soft).
    I make a power porridge in which I have quinoa, amaranth, and millet (another small tiny grain that is good for you). 2 to 1 ratio of water to grain when cooking it the grains at the same time. In which it is the most nutritious to keep them grains, and not processed into flakes. Flakes may become soggy once you put on the soy milk and then heat them up? Eat it just like cereal with cold soy milk, and then go look in the Bob’s Red Mill section of the grocery market for a package of whole grain amaranth and quinoa and millet.
