About Black Seed

For many centuries, the Black Seed of the Nigella Sativa plant has been revered as a medicine and an invaluable product in the maintenance of health and well-being. Studies conducted across universities and research facilities across the world are providing mounting evidence as to why the Black Seed and its oil are an invaluable supplement to health and well being.

A recent study conducted by an Australian university shows that our globally unique Hab Shifa Black Seed Oil has up to 20 times more antioxidants than the best Extra Virgin Olive Oils*1. In addition to this, our Black Seed Oil contains an array of vitamins, minerals and a high concentration of essential fatty acids.

Black Seed Recipes

Chicken and Cheese Quesadillas

Ingredients for the Chicken and Cheese Quesadillas
4 large flour tortilla
2 grilled chicken breast
2 cups of grated cheese (mixture is best - my favorite is mozzarella, herb gouda and kashkaval)
1 tablespoon black cumin seeds, finely ground
salt and pepper to taste
Garnishes below - tomato salsa, guacamole and yogurt


Shred the cheeses you have decided to use and mix in the ground black seeds.  Lay all four flour tortillas on a level surface and place the chopped chicken breasts on one half of  the tortilla.  Put 1/2 of a one on each flour tortilla.  Make sure the chicken is cut in very small pieces.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Divide the cheese into 4 equal parts and sprinkle over the chicken. Gently fold the quesadilla in half. Heat a heavy bottom skillet and place a bit of oil in the bottom and using a pastry brush, cover the bottom of the pan.

Grill your quesadillas on one side until nicely colored. Turn over the quesadillas and continue to cook until the cheese has melted completely. This whole process should take about 4 minutes per quesadillas. Transfer with a spatula to a cutting board and cut in half. Serve hot.  

You can garnish them as you like, but traditional garnishes are yogurt, pico de gallo and guacamole.
