Dried Spiny Amaranth Greens


Dehydrating Spiny Amaranth greens is a great way to preserve the wild nutrition for later use. Add the powdered or flaked/crushed greens to smoothies, sauces, soups, rice – anything that needs a little extra green goodness!


Fresh wild Amaranth greens

Step 1

Wash greens. Spread greens into a single layer on racks inside a dehydrator. Dehydrate the greens at 145° for 2.5 hours.

Step 2

Place dehydrated greens in a blender, and blend until it becomes a fine powder. Or, place greens into a large bowl and crush with hands into small flakes.

Step 3

Sift the powder through a sieve to remove larger pieces. Or, if making the flakes then remove stems and any larger chunks by hand.

Step 4

Place into labeled jar with tight fitting lid. Store in cool, dark place.
