Still don’t have black cumin in your pantry?
It’s a must.
Because in addition to its aroma and intense flavor – not unlike nutmeg – Nigella or black cumin seeds contain more than one hundred chemical constituents which are very beneficial for your health.
The unsaturated fatty acids in this spice not only strengthen the immune system.
They also help lower cholesterol levels, hypertension, inflammation and diabetes.
But let’s talk about flavors!
And let’s talk about exquisite preparations.
Black cumin seeds are often used as a substitute for black pepper, especially in foods that contain a lot of fat (any lamb preparation for example), since it activates and stabilizes digestion.
It’s also used in the preparation of breads and cakes.
With vegetables of any kind …
Croutons over salads …
In Curries …
And in any other dish that comes to your creative mind.
Of course, always in small quantities.
As with nutmeg, excessive use of this type of spice may cause nausea and vomiting.
But don’t worry too much about that!
Black cumin has been used since the time of the Pharaohs!
In fact, the oil that emerges from black cumin leaves is known as the oil of the Pharaohs. Some say Cleopatra often used it as her own beauty oil.
