Description

Details

Chia seeds come from a plant in the Lamiaceaefamily (like thyme, wild thyme and mint…) from Mexico.

Like all seeds, they are very nutritious. They were widely used by the Aztecs, and were one of their main sources of plant food along with corn and beans. They are still very much used in Latin America today and are now becoming a Super Food in Europe.

What’s the best way to use chia seeds ?

In addition to their health benefits, chia seeds are a very interesting culinary ingredient as they can absorb up to as much as 12 times their weight in liquid, whch makes them perfect for thickening sauces, soups, or making creme desserts and porridge.

Sprinkle raw chia seeds over your salads, muesli and breakfast oats or yoghurts to add a delicious crunch!

How to use chia seeds for thickening sauces: make a paste of chia by mixing 1 part ground chia seeds with 7 parts water.10 minutes before you finish cooking add 1 to 2 teaspoons of this paste to the dish (soups, stews, spaghetti sauces …) to make a richer sauce.

Chia pudding: mix 4 tablespoons chia seeds with 150g greek yoghurt and 35cl milk.

Flavour to taste.

Chia cream dessert: mix 25g ground chia seeds with 200ml coconut milk and 1 tablespoon of agave nectar. Pour into 2 ramekins and leave to set in the fridge for 1 hour.
