Taste and usage
Amaranth Cress is a highly decorative cress with a mild red beet-like flavour. Due to these charcteristics the cress can be used in multiple situations. As a garnish with cream soup, a colourful touch with fish, or mixed in a salad, there is always a good use for Scarlet Cress. 

Amaranth Cress is part of a family of highly nutritious plants that is widely used as leaf vegetables, cereals or ornamentals throughout the tropics and in warmer regions. It is a rich source of vitamins and dietary minerals. The seeds are said to have a higher protein content than wheat.
