Are they gelatinous like flax seeds? crackers?
Spicy flavor? condiment?
Should I just sprout them on a chia head??? Put in salads?
Help me out here, my raw food homies!

I let them thicken for about 10 mins.
I cut a papaya in 2 lengthways. After I have discarded the seeds I fill the space with the chia jelly and eat them togeather with a spoon.

They make a refreshing gel and have a slight nutty flavor, but really not much flavor at all. I just eat them as is. In Mexico they make Chia Fresca by gelling them then mixing with lemon juice, ice and a sweetener.

I just made a tasty pesto last night:
2 bunches basil
1/4 cup chia seeds soaked in 3/4 cup water
1 1/2 cup pine nuts
1 clove garlic
Blend in Vitamix until smooth.
