Aug 5th 2019

You know about quinoa, you know about black beans, but what are Black Seeds you ask? Black Seeds (Nigella Sativa) are known by several names such as black cumin, black coriander, Roman coriander, and black caraway. These seeds are highly regarded around the world by millions of people for their health-boosting properties. In addition to this, they taste delicious and beautify any dish they're added to!

One of the easiest ways to incorporate black seeds into your diet is to grind them up and use them as spice. Add it to your base when sauteing onions and garlic for your stews or chili just like you would any other spice. You can mix it in your beans or quinoa to give it a hint of cumin-like taste. It's especially great to use on tacos to brighten up vegetarian and vegan versions.
