- 1 1/2 lbs. venison or stew meat
- 6 med. potatoes
- 6 carrots
- 3 stalks celery
- 1 pkg. onion soup mix
- 1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
- 1 can mushrooms
Brown meat. Cut up potatoes, carrots and celery - place in crock pot. Sprinkle with onion soup mix. Add tomato sauce and mushrooms. Let cook on LOW all day.
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup amaranth
Combine water, the amaranth, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat for 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Makes about 1 cups.
Variation with Mixed Tiny Grains: Mix teff, amaranth, and quinoa, the latter thoroughly rinsed, and cook as described.
