Chia seeds come from the Salvia Hispanica plant and are an unprocessed whole grain. Their culinary history dates back to the Mayan and Aztec civilizations, but they have recently regained their status as a useful food ingredient. Whole seeds can be added to a dish or soaked in water to create a gel.

To create a chia seed gel - mix 1/3 cup of seeds with 2 cups of water. Stir to incorporate, then let sit for 1-2 minutes. Stir again and let thicken for 10-15 minutes. Chia gel can be stored in a refrigerator for up to two weeks.

Sprinkle whole chia seeds on oatmeal, rice, couscous or vegetables. The seeds can also be added to your baking, for both savory dishes and desserts. Use the chia seed gel in dressings, dips, sauces, soups, spreads and more.

Chia seeds are native to Mexico
