Amaranth has been popular in Mexico since the reign of the Aztecs. Today, Mexicans enjoy it much more casually, sometimes as flour in tamales or whole in soups and granola.

Teff is the main ingredient in injera, the sour, fermented flatbread that Ethiopians use both as a plate and an eating utensil, tearing off chunks of the spongy rounds to scoop up spicy stews.

Quinoa's protein quality is among the highest in the vegetable kingdom, thanks to its rich stores of lysine, an essential amino acid often in short supply in other grains.
