Chia seeds are obtained from the dried flowers of a plant in the mint family. They have a mild, nutty flavor similar to poppy seeds. Aside from notoriety for generating the "hair" in Chia Pets, the seed is fiber dense, packed with nutrients and high in antioxidants. Chia seeds are also a high mucilage superfood that provides Omega 3 fatty acids and they have endless culinary uses. They can be used to thicken foods, to make puddings and add directly to salads, cereal, soups, smoothies and baked goods. Also, the seeds can easily be sprouted and produce a Micro-Green for salads, sandwiches and wraps.
Chia seeds do not need to be soaked and once planted they will sprout in 1 day. Refrigerate your sprouts after their final rinse.
