Amaranth has a nutty, earthy flavor.



Place amaranth, shallots, salt and mushroom broth in a medium-size saucepan. Bring to a simmer, cover and reduce heat to very low. Cook for 25 minutes or until grain absorbs all liquid. Transfer to 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 fork into pancake shape. Cook until browned on bottoms, about 1 minute, flip and brown the other side. Repeat with remaining mixture.

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