My best friend Basil had a handbag of them that was passed on yesteryear a co-worker as well as he catch that I mightiness last interested inwards coming upwardly amongst a recipe. Surely I was but, well, amongst my distracted attending bridge combined amongst Basil's, those footling gems nearly went to the grave amongst us. We didn't forget nigh them, but Basil forgot to convey them to me when he visited as well as I forgot to remind him to post them domicile amongst me when I visited. Finally they arrived dorsum inwards my kitchen as well as I went amongst a uncomplicated custard-like pudding that turned out fifty-fifty amend than I imagined. I suppose yous may depict the dish every bit tapioca-like. The chia seeds puff upwardly into footling pearls every bit they soak, contributing a pleasing texture to this vegetarian as well as vegan-friendly delight. It mightiness non last the prettiest pudding you'll eat, but 1 of the most delicious I've had inwards a long time.

It makes for a fine breakfast because it's non also sweet, but it's also a lovely dessert to destination whatever meal. If yous are going to savor the pudding for breakfast, I would advise getting the soaking procedure started earlier yous larn to bed — it won't conduct keep long.

If yous are novel to chia seeds, get-go amongst a few teaspoons as well as gradually growth your consumption. Like many other foods, the cardinal is moderation though — yous don't ask to sprinkle them on everything yous consume throughout the day.
