If you like cooking with chia or flax seeds, enjoying the nuttiness and nutritional benefits they add to every dish, you will love experimenting with poppy seeds.

Don’t forget about dessert, either! The savoriness of poppy seeds makes a welcome contrast with sweets that contain fruit. It also complements sour or bitter ingredients, like lemon and almond. You can sprinkle foods you are about to serve, like chicken or rice casseroles, with poppy seeds as well to give them a slightly different-from-the-norm flavor.
Whatever you make with Spanish poppy seeds, you will enjoy the many nutritional benefits, too. The seeds are high in fiber and antioxidants. They naturally help decrease levels of bad cholesterol while increasing levels of good cholesterol. When you purchase poppy seeds to use in your recipes, you also receive high doses of iron, copper, magnesium and more essential minerals. The folate and thiamin in poppy seeds have been shown to help fight the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
