Fenugreek seeds are rich in protein and in some cultures both the leaves and seeds are consumed as a food. As a seasoning, the seeds are used whole or ground in a variety of ethnic cuisines.
Fenugreek provides tang to Indian and Thai curry blends and other spice mixtures, chutneys and Middle Eastern halva. In several African countries and in Egypt, the seeds are roasted to produce a hot, coffee-like beverage. Egyptians also grind and mix the seeds with wheat flour to make bread. Fenugreek leaves are served as a vegetable in India. In the United States, fenugreek is used as a flavoring in beverages, candies and desserts, meat dishes, pickles, baked goods and puddings. Fenugreek and mint make a lovely tea blend. Extracts from the seeds are used for flavoring syrups and sauces (like artificial maple flavoring and imitation maple syrup) and pipe tobaccos. Use fenugreek sparingly; too much can make a dish bitter.

Can't be sprouted

I was disappointed to find out that these seeds can't be sprouted. I tried 4-5 different times and eventually had to give up. I suppose they have treated them in a way so as to kill their ability to sprout.
Frontier usually does better

I recently opened my second bag of Frontier Whole Fenugreek Seed. The first bag was excellent. The second bag, unfortunately, immediately struck me as being somewhat off-color. It looked like it was not clean and was not terribly fresh, though the best buy date was years away. Worse, the second time I used it, I found a piece that was more black than the rest. I wasn't sure at first if it was a bad fenugreek grain or some dirt or something. Turns out it was a small black rock, slighly larger than the fenugreek, but not big enough that it would be easy to distinguish. It would have been very easy to break a tooth on this. I would not buy Frontier brand fenugreek again, and strongly recommend against it. I contacted them, and they advised me to ask iherb for a refund. I chose not to do so, as I don't think iHerb is responsible for Frontier's problems in q/a.
