Whole-Wheat Linguine with Beet Puree and Chia Seeds via Cooking Melangery This bright red pasta will definitely steal the spotlight on the dinner table. In addition to looking flashy, it’s also pretty healthy. The pasta (whole-wheat, of course) gets its punchy color from beets and plenty of flavor from toasted walnuts, chia seeds, and goat cheese.
Eggplant Parmesan with Chia via Blue Apron In this ultimate comfort food dish, chia subs in for egg, adding extra fiber, protein, and antioxidants. After prepping the eggplant slices, bake them in the oven with plenty of lycopene-rich tomato sauce, basil leaves, and of course, mozzarella cheese.
Superfood Butternut Squash Loaf via The Second Renaissance Power up for the day with a slice of this gluten-free, sugar-free bread. Quinoa and buckwheat flours and flax, chia, and hemp seeds are only some of the healthy ingredients in this slightly sweet breakfast loaf.
