Red Amaranth micro cress is best used for raw preparations. This is because the delicate micro cress can’t withstand high heat and will wilt in high temperatures. However, as it is best used raw, Micro Red Amaranth should be used as a garnish. Amaranth micro cress is well suited for both sweet and savoury dishes. Micro Amaranth cress will add vibrant purple and red colours to a range of culinary creations. Amaranth cress can be used in larger quantities, or just a few stems to enhance the flavour on a plate. Try adding flavoursome garnishes to salmon, pastas, sandwiches and canapés. Micro Red Amaranth cress can be mixed with other micro herbs and shoots to create earthy, fresh and flavourful salads. In addition, it can be used to garnish a range of desserts including chocolate cakes and yoghurts.

Taste: Amaranth micro cress has a mild and earthy flavour. This is reminiscent of beet, with a delicate and sweet grassy finish.
