I've had some chia seeds sitting in my pantry for a few months now and, after a little research, made some chia seed gel (1/3 cup chia seeds mixed with 2 cups of water or fresh fruit juice - or perhaps a nut milk).

Recipe Directions

Finely chop fruit and add chia gel. Or you can throw it all into a blender for a pulse, or three, and spoon into a bowl. Mmmm, a sprinkle of nuts would be a good addition too.

It reminded me of pearl tapioca which I haven't eaten since I was 7 years old!

As the gel has a neutral flavour, I will be trying it in soups, etc, this week as a thickening agent and for texture.
