Uses

  • Seeds are used as a spice in curries etc.

  • The leaves dried or fresh are used as a herb.

  • The young tender shoots are eaten as a vegetable or as a salad.

  • If you've ever taken a whiff of fenugreek seeds right out of the packet, you know they have a bitter-sweet, caramel or maple aroma that translates into their unique flavour. Boiled until soft, sweetened and strained, they become a rich, delicious syrup perfect for your weekend morning pancakes!

  • They are credited with many heath benefits.
