Red amaranth is a fine example of root to stem cooking
Red amaranth is one of the greens that grows very well in hot and humid weather
I signed up recently for a fresh flower subscription. A box of freshly cut flowers and foliage is sent home every week. One week, the contents included what looked like red amaranth leaves and flowers, the latter cascading into pretty red tassels from the straight stems, making quite a statement in a flower vase. This is one of the rare vegetables that performs the role of showpiece and superfood with equal panache.
