Going back through Born to Run looking for the recipes and blogging them. The first I found, on page 44, is for iskiate, or chia fresca, described as "dissolving chia seeds in water with a little sugar and a squirt of lime". I don't believe it is "dissolving"; rather, it behaves like mustard and flax seeds, generating mucilage as it starts to sprout. I'm testing it now by attempting to sprout it along with mung beans. Anyway, I don't see the need for either the sugar or the lime, but might give it a try.
