Fenugreek - Adding Flavour To Your Life!

It not only sounds unusual, but it is... UNUSUALLY HEALTHY! 

Why, you might ask? Fenugreek, also known as methi, is widely regarded as one of the world's top superfoods. This adaptable herb, spice, and vegetable is a sweet and binding spice that adds flavour to your food. It may taste like burnt sugar at first, but once you try it, you will be aromatically enlightened! 

Fenugreek's dried leaves and aromatic seeds are also used in a variety of herbal medicines.  Fenugreek contains an abundance of vitamins and minerals, including:

  • Vitamin B1, B2, B3 & B6 
  • Vitamin C
  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Magnesium 
  • Manganese

Almost everyone, from diabetics to heart patients, are encouraged to include fenugreek in their diet. This clover-like herb was derived from the Near East and has been used since ancient times. Traces of dried out fenugreek seeds were even found in the tomb of Tutankhamen! Fenugreek is also filled with soluble dietary fibre to keep your tummy smiling :)

“Fenugreek, Tuesday's spice, when the air is green like mosses after rain.”

 -Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
