lack beans, lentils, chickpeas, kidney and lima beans, soybeans, black-eyed peas, and hazelnuts are just some of the tasty seeds pictured here along with rice, other kinds of delicious nuts, and a whole range of grains. The spice rack is full too with cumin, vanilla, mustard, cardamom, carob, and coriander.
fter gazing at this big, bold celebration of seeds, you find a couple of concluding pages that address seedy topics like nut allergies, planting seeds, seeds for spreads, breads and noodles and why seeds are a healthy food and so good for us.
