  2. So hard to tell from that picture, but I’m guessing black quinoa.

  3. Those are black sesame seeds.

  4. red quinoa?

  5. Chia (aka Salba)or balck or red quinoa.

    Chia Seeds

  7. LOL, I was going to say chipotle chilli powder until I saw other folks’ guesses and took a closer look. It does look like red quinoa that I’ve found at Whole Foods. It cooks up and tastes the same as regular quinoa, but I like it because it’s more interesting to look at.

  8. Looks like chia seeds to me. :)

  9. looks like it could be chia seeds or black lentils

  10. I agree that it looks like quinoa- red quinoa, which is delicious!

  11. So what is it?

  12. Chi-chi-chi-chia seeds!

    I kept thinking, “that looks like charred quinoa.” Then I saw the other posts and some say black quinoa. Cool. I haven’t tried that, I’ll take a look at my food co-op today.

  14. Nancy Michel says:

    Looks a bit like Nigella seeds, but the whiteish/reddish seeds are not usually found that abundantly in it.

  15. Some sort of roe?

  16. Rosemary says:

    I was thinking some kind of chocolate brownie!

  17. Lentils
