Just like quinoa and millet, amaranth is not technically a grain (although it is often referred to as such). It is a great source of essential amino acids, calcium, iron, and magnesium. Amaranth has a texture that makes it perfect for porridge-like dishes, and you can mix it in with other grains to make a filling substitute for rice.
