Aztec Superfood

Chia seeds were a key part of the diet and culture of ancient civilizations, including the Aztecs, Incans, and Mayans. The Tarahumara and Chumash people in Mexico would create a ‘running food’ by roasting, crushing, and mixing the seed with water to make a gel. Chia seeds are a strong vegetarian source of omega fatty acids, protein, calcium, antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and soluble fiber. The slightly crunchy seeds absorb liquid and swell up to form a gel that helps to support hydration and gives a feeling of fullness. Sprinkle the mild nutty-flavored seeds into smoothies, oatmeal, granola, cereal, and yogurt, or use them as a thickener.

Culinary Suggestions for Chia Seeds

Chia seeds have a very mild nutty flavor. Therefore, they’re easy to blend into a wide variety of recipes. We suggest that you sprinkle a spoonful into smoothies, oatmeal, salad, granola, pudding, cereal, or yogurt. Chia seeds are very hydrophilic and have the unusual ability to absorb liquid and form a gel. This makes chia especially good as a thickening agent in soups and smoothies, or enjoyed as a pudding with a touch of sweetener. The seeds can also be enjoyed in recipes as an egg replacement, and they also work well as a flour substitute to make hearty breads, crackers, and other baked goods.

Light Guacamole

In a blender or food processor, blend the tomato into a chunky puree. Transfer to a small bowl, add the chia seeds, and stir well to combine. Let sit for 10 minutes to allow the chia seeds to swell and the mixture to thicken. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mash the avocado with the back of a fork into a paste. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, mixed onion, cilantro, and lime juice, and mix well. Add the thickened tomato-chia mixture and stir. Add sea salt to taste, and spike with hot sauce, if desired, to the preferred heat level. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with extra chopped onion and cilantro. The yield for this recipe is 6 servings.
