I keep cumin' in my kitchen. Sometimes it gets into what I'm cooking.

When a recipe calls for sugar, don't use cheap honey as a substitute...

Recently I've discovered the superfoods black rice and black chia seeds. Both are loaded with antioxidants and chia has one of the highest fiber/total carbohydrate ratios I've ever seen (like 90%) as well as a bunch of protein.

Here I've made black rice with chia seeds, sweet potato, scallions and ginger topped with a little EVOO. ... With a side order of sausage.

Do you grind the seeds?

Didn't even think of it the seeds are so damn tiny to begin with. What do you use it for ground? Guess I could see mixing it with flour for a high fiber bread or adding it as a thickener for soups or stir fry like a healthier corn starch. What do you use it for ground?

I am also interested in black rice bran. 1 tbls. of black rice bran has more anthocyanin antioxidants than a tbls. of blueberries but it takes 10 tbls. of the same amount of cooked black rice to get the same amount. I don't think extracting the bran is the same as grinding the rice, though. Think that just gives me black rice flour. Not sure I can even make the bran with home appliances.

I only asked because some seeds, such as flax, need to be ground or they pass right through and the benefits aren't received. I've never had chia seeds so I was curious if they were a seed that could be broken down or not. Smile

Ah, I see. "Flaxseeds have a thick husk that cannot be digested, so they must be ground for your body to get at those nutrients. Chia can be eaten whole or ground."

Add ground chia to your flour when you bread chicken fingers. Too much will ruin it, but about a sixth chia (one part chia, five parts flour) will do the trick. Awesomeness.

You have just begun reading the sentence you have just finished reading.
