how to use chia seeds
Ah, ok. I think I was getting cosnfued as I keep seeing chia seed puddings so made an automatic assumption that they were sweet and that people were using them as a sweetener. I’m clearly out of the superfood loop!
They are definitely not sweet, in fact they are very bland which makes them ideal for including in so many types of dishes, both sweet and savory. They tend to take on the flavors of the ingredients that are mixed with them.
I don’t understand what chia seeds are??? Are they from soy? Where do they grow? Sorry to be so dense. I’ve read and read but can’t seem to get it. Thank you, Elizabeth
Hi Elizabeth, Chia seeds come from a plant related to mint – salvia hispanica. The plant produces a purple flower which bears the seeds. They grow in South America and now in Australia. They are small, something between a sesame seed and poppy seed in size and can be either black or white. Hope that helps.
