Have you tried chia seeds? They are my latest healthy obsession. I’ve been aware of chia seeds for years, but only in the curious form of a sprouting chia pet. Turns out chia seeds are edible and nutritious.
My first kitchen experiment was making chia seed gel. I stirred 1 tablespoon chia seeds into 1/2 cup water. After 10 minutes the mixture thickened and formed a gel. (The chia gel can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for several days.)
Next I added a spoonful of the chia gel to sparkling juice and gave it a taste. The chewy texture of the gelled seeds reminded me of bubble tea, but with teeny tiny bubbles. (The champagne of bubble tea!) Overall, I found my first experience with chia seeds to be odd, interesting and kinda addictive. I’d love to hear how you’re using chia seeds.
