Micro Red Amaranth greens are best for raw applications but they are certainly a canbe added in stir fry to add color but will be whilted. Their mild and earthy flavor complements both sweet and savory dishes, and they are commonly used as a garnish.

In RedEarth we love to pile them over smoked salmon placed in sandwiches, served over pasta or quinoa, and mixed into green salads. They are best left undressed and added only at the very final stage of finishing a dish. The delicate leaves will wilt if exposed to prolonged heat and cannot stand up to heavy dressings and sauces

. Micro Red Amaranth pairs well with green apples, blood oranges, carrots, bell peppers, onions, and seafood. They will keep 5-7 days when stored unwashed, in a sealed container, and in the refrigerator. It is recommended to use these greens immediately for the best quality and flavor.
