Amaranth and Lentils Protein Recipe For Breast Cancer

Amaranth has the highest level of protein per serving out of all of the different grains. Amaranth can be added to other plant protein sources to create whole protein.  It also contains the cancer fighting phytochemical squalene. In studies, the antioxidant squalene has been shown to reduce or halt the blood supply to tumours, studies also indicate that the amaranth seed can inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells. The following lentils and amaranth patties recipe is healthy, easy to make, vegan and delicious! Always use organic ingredients when possible.

  • 1 cup red lentils
  • ½ cup amaranth

  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs (GF)
  • some sliced black olives (optional, but recommended)
  • salt and ground pepper, to taste
  • some oil
