Avoid Fenugreek seed during pregnancy, as it can be a uterine stimulant. Although Fenugreek can be used to lower blood sugar levels, diabetics should use it for this purpose only with guidance from a qualified health-care practitioner.
The genus name Trigonella derives from the Greek trigonon, "triangle," in reference to the three-sided corolla of the flower. The species name, foenum-graecum, is Latin for "Greek hay," in reference to the fact that Fenugreek was once used to scent inferior grades of hay.
Fenugreek seeds can be sprouted as a salad green. They have a flavor somewhere between that of bitter celery, burnt sugar, and maple syrup, and they combine well in tea with a bit of Cinnamon bark or a spoonful of honey. The roasted seeds can be brewed as a coffee substitute. The fresh leaves of the plant are edible and can be eaten raw or cooked.
