How to Eat Moringa Seeds
While the most common way to eat moringa is to use the plant’s leaves in salads or to powder the leaves for use in supplements or shakes, there are other parts of the plant you can eat as well. People also regularly eat the buds, flowers and pods that grow from moringa plants. Another common practice is to eat moringa seeds, both by themselves and mixed in with other food.
Moringa seeds do not have the kind of taste you would expect from most types of seeds or nuts. However, they are most certainly edible! It is generally recommended that you eat them in small doses, as they have a “cleansing” effect on your digestive system. But when eaten in appropriate doses, they are extremely healthy and beneficial to your body.
One of the ways you can eat moringa seeds is to pop them like popcorn. Simply fry them with some cooking oil and watch them blow up. You can eat a few and be fine, but you will likely need to slowly adjust your body to eating the seeds in this way. Again, you’ll want to be careful about the “cleansing” effects the seeds can produce.
Moringa seeds can also be added to other foods, like stews, casseroles, soups and sauces, to give those foods an extra crunchy texture. Drying the seeds is another option, and allows you to add them into bread or muffin mixes (in the same way that people often do with poppy seeds) or to corn bread mixes.
Just as your digestive system may need an adjustment period to get used to eating moringa seeds, so may your taste buds. Moringa seeds taste sweet when you first put them into your mouth, but soon create a bitter taste that you don’t often find in seeds or nuts. Once you have adjusted to the unique flavor, they offer you an extremely concentrated dose of minerals and vitamins.
