This is a very tasty version of sloppy joes. If you're looking for old fashioned "comfort food" you need look no further!
Makes a sizeable amount for hungry people and/or leftovers. Use leftover pieces of any rustic bread that's otherwise too hard to eat - it will hold up better than fresher breads
In a very large covered frying pan, saute onions and peppers in water or oil. When soft, add remaining ingredients and stir well. Cook on low-medium heat for 20 minutes, covered, stirring occasionally. When done, serve over toast, toasted english muffins, or rice.
- 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.
