FENNEL SEEDS Their licorice flavor makes them a good alternative for nigella seeds. Use them in cooking or baking, but consider toasting them first - this will release a much fuller flavor.

CARAWAY SEEDS With a similar flavor profile to nigella seeds, these tiny aromatic seeds are one of the best alternatives in both cooking and baking. They're a versatile ingredient with a peppery flavor, often used in middle eastern cuisine.
