Coffee caviare

This recipe is based on the fact that, by their nature, seeds readily absorb as much moisture as they can. This gives the seeds a caviare-like appearance and a jelly-like structure with a crunchy core.

Preparation method

  • Mix the basil seeds with the water and let stand for half an hour. The seeds will absorb water and take on the appearance of real caviar. On their own, the seeds have a neutral flavour.
  • Now add the sugar water and stir in the instant coffee. Store in the refrigerator until serving.

Serving suggestions
