    It looks like black quinoa.

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

  3. Those are black sesame seeds.

  4. Tessa B says:

    red quinoa?

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

  6. Catherine says:

    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

    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
