Basically you just put 1 tablespoon of amaranth in a dry pan over medium heat, cover and shake for about 30-40 seconds and then continue to shake off of the heat for another 20 seconds or so. Pour into a bowl and repeat that process until you reach your desired amount of cereal. I usually do about 4 tablespoons for me and 2 tablespoons for Kenley. Enjoy your popped amaranth with your desired choice of milk (I prefer chocolate almond milk).
Let me know if you try it!
Edited to add: In the comments Kimi asked what the cost for amaranth is. Here is my reply:
The amaranth is $3.98/pound. I bought about half a pound which equals about 2 cups. So this will make a lot of cereal. I would guess that 1 tbsp of dry amaranth equals about 3 tbsp popped amaranth.
I eat about 4 tbsps (dry) a sitting so that 2 cups would equal 8 servings which would come out to .25 cents per bowl! 1 cup of dry Amaranth has 716 kcal, 26 grams of protein, and it is a complete protein!
