How do you use amaranth plant?

Chef's answer
(You can eat the buds and flowers, but the leaves will not be as tender and tasty anymore once the plant flowers.) The youngest leaves have a milder flavour and are good to use in salads, the mature leaves are better cooked like spinach. Anything you would use spinach for, just use amaranth leaves exactly the same way..
