Assemble guanimes (Step 2) and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
Amaranth (celosia) is a leafy plant that is cultivated for both its leaves and seeds. You can use the leaves as you would spinach, while the protein-packed seeds are often sold dried and can be cooked and prepared like a grain.
You can substitute cornhusks for banana leaves. Before using them, soak in hot water, weighted with a heavy plate or pan to keep them submerged, for 30 minutes. Drain.
