Such a comforting and delicious breakfast made with three types of nutritious whole grains. It's a very hearty and filling, it has a soft yet chewy texture, and whole grain nutty flavor.

plus more to thin
- 2 Tbsp
real maple syrup,
or more to taste
Add steel cut oats, farro, amaranth, water and salt to a large saucepan and stir.
Bring mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat. Then reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered until nearly tender, stirring occasionally, about 25 minutes.
Add milk and cinnamon and cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 5 minutes longer while thinning with more milk as desired.
Stir in maple syrup, add desired toppings. Serve warm.
If you don't have a sieve fine enough to rinse the amaranth you can skip this step. I buy amaranth
Good toppings include chopped nuts, dried fruit like raisins or dried cranberries, fresh berries, bananas, peaches, mangos, apples, coconut, nut butters, fruit curds, jams or syrups.
