Amaranth has a nutty, earthy flavor.



Place amaranth, shallots, salt and broth in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer, cover and reduce heat to very low. Cook for 25 minutes or until grain absorbs all the liquid. Transfer to a mixing bowl and let cool. Stir in egg, flour and marjoram.

Pour 1/8-inch layer of oil into large skillet, and heat over medium heat. When oil is hot, drop in 2 tablespoon-size mounds of amaranth mixture and flatten with a fork into a pancake shape. Cook until browned on the bottoms, about 1 minute. Flip and brown the other side. Repeat with remaining mixture.

To serve, garnish with chopped parsley and shaved Parmesan, if using; serve immediately.
