Hemp Seed Pesto
Hemp seed is high in protein and has a delicate flavor similar to sunflower seeds and works well in pestos. This is a classic basil pesto with a high protein twist.
- 1 cup Basil leaves, washed washed
- 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese grated or chopped
- 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/2 cup Hulled Hemp Seed
Combine basil, Parmesan cheese and olive oil in a blender or food processor and blend to preferred texture.*
Add hemp seed and blend just until mixed.**
Serve immediately or store in a covered container for up to a week.
*Shorter processing leaves larger chunks of cheese. **Add the hemp last and blend until its combined well.
Serve with crackers, fresh vegetables, as a sandwich spread or tossed with pasta.
