Amaranth is a leaf vegetable and grain that has been eaten for centuries all over the world. Amaranth seeds have been used since ancient times in Central and Latin America and in the countries of the Himalayas. Amaranth leaves are used across Asia.
Red amaranth is also known as Chinese Spinach. It shares no familiar ties to spinach, but it shares a similar taste. Both stems and leaves have a slightly rough texture but are completely edible. The leaves can be eaten raw as a salad green.
