Amaranth with wok vegetables

In this dish, I have successfully combined vegetables prepared in a wok, which I love immensely, and the pseudo-cereal amaranth (technically not a cereal). For vegetarians and those who are not allowed to eat anything with gluten, this is a great meal. For the rest of us, it’s also a great and healthy meal, and can be a great side dish to meat. The Chinese mixture of spices in the vegetable dish gives a specialty.

Amaranth with wok vegetables

Preparation steps

  • Prepare amaranth according to the instructions on the package, cook in water, on low heat for about 20 minutes or until completely cooked.
  • Fry the zucchini (not all at once, but a small amount), in a little fat, stirring constantly, in a wok pan for 5 minutes until golden brown. Sprinkle with a little soy sauce and sprinkle with a little Chinese spice mixture. Remove the roasted zucchini from the pan, set aside. Repeat with the remaining zucchini until the whole amount is cooked through.
  • Fry onions, peppers, celery and garlic, with the addition of soy sauce and spices, in a little fat in a wok for 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan, set aside.
  • Mushrooms, with the addition of soy sauce and spices, fry in a little fat in a wok for 1-2 minutes. Return the fried vegetables, zucchini, onions, peppers and celery to the wok, mix with the champignons.
  • Cooked amaranth add, stir to combine vegetables and amaranth.
