Introduction

The name fenugreek comes from the Latin term Foenum-graecum, or Greek hay, the plant being used to scent moldy hay. The genus name, Trigonella, is derived from another Greek name denoting "three-angled," from the shape of the "crown" around the seed. Ancient Roman medicine used fenugreek as an aid to male potency. Fenugreek is one of the base ingredients in curry powder and is used extensively in cooking throughout Asia. It is also used as a base for perfumes, soaps, and lotions.

Summary

Fenugreek is a historically significant spice, lending its flavor to dishes from Egypt to India and across the Middle East. Though best known in the United States for the flavor it imparts on traditional curry seasoning, fenugreek as a spice is much further reaching. The seeds are ground into powder and used to make flour, thicken stews, and add flavor to a wide variety of meat dishes. The powder has a sweet, nutty aroma, reminiscent of maple syrup, though the flavor itself is decidedly bitter. The seeds can be roasted as needed in order to cut the bitterness and bring some of the natural sugars to the surface.

Fenugreek seeds are also popular for their delicious sprouts. Simply soak the seeds overnight and transfer them to a moist, closed environment where they will begin sprouting within days. The sprouts can then be used to spice up salads and sandwiches.
