Black seed, also known as Nigella Seed, is added to coffee or tea for evocative flavoring. Resembling a poppy seed, it has an oregano-like quality with herbaceous notes, and a warm, toasted-onion flavor. It is somewhat bitter, dry and almost crunchy comparable to a mustard seed. It is commonly used as a seasoning in Middle Eastern and India dishes. Also used in all manners of cooking and baking: bread, pasta, casseroles, salads, and stir fry. It contains several antioxidant compounds and may have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
